On November 4, 2021, the government released 2021 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review: Build Ontario. The document included a commitment to modernize the education curriculum “to ensure all students, including young women, have the foundational and entrepreneurial skills they need in a rapidly changing world along with a renewed focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).” The ministry is seeking feedback on a variety of topics related to the modernization of the high school curriculum, including graduation requirements, modernized learning opportunities, course types and pathways, and the curriculum review cycle.

The OFIFC welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback on modernizing the public education system. Through our extensive community consultation; program administration, data collection, and evaluation; and community-based research, the OFIFC has built considerable expertise in evidence-based policy development and community planning. The OFIFC’s submission will highlight key education priorities of our membership within the province’s areas of inquiry.
