The provincial Liberals want students to better understand First Nations treaties.
Aboriginal Affairs Minister David Zimmer says a new school curriculum about treaties is being developed in partnership with First Nation Leaders that helps students learn about First Nation communities, cultures and perspectives.
The first step is a map being sent to every elementary and high school in the province.
Ontario is covered by 46 treaties and other agreements, including Treaty 3 covering this area and signed in 1873.
