- Journey into new ways of being church and,
- Understand and engage with the struggle for dignity and economic justice for our neighbours and God’s Creation

The Conference Office has the “We are all Treaty People” guide and teaching kit that is available for use. This resource is full of fun and engaging activities that will help students learn about the treaty relationship in Ontario.
The guide for Grades 1-8, written by teacher Kelly Crawford from M’Chigeeng First Nation, makes the connections to the Ontario curriculum in the areas of Math, Language, Social Studies and the Arts – based on the book “We are all Treaty People.”
If you would like to borrow the kit, please contact the Conference Office by phone or email at:
