Chapter 8: Project Expansion
With the support of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant, our project expanded to include additional support from professors at the University of Winnipeg and Carleton University. A steering committee was formed in 2021, to develop a strategic plan and support policy writing in governance, job descriptions, and the creation of a constitution.
A group of Early Childhood Educators from across Northern Manitoba began contributing activities to include Indigenous Ways of Knowing into the project, with the support of the Frontier School Division. More information about ToyBox's commitment to Truth and Reconciliation can be found here.
Team members from across the province met at Frontier School Division's
Winnipeg office, in August 2021.
