Action Plan Progress Tracker
The Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE) has a number of actions plan that guide the department's work.
Below is a list of some of the primary action plans that are currently being implemented. View the Progress Tracker for each one for a real-time view of our progress to date.
Improving Student Outcomes Action Plan
In 2018-2019, the ECE conducted a Formative Evaluation of the Education Renewal and Innovation Framework (ERI Evaluation). During the same time, the Office of the Auditor General of Canada (OAG) conducted a performance Audit (OAG Audit) of early childhood to Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 (JK-12) education in the Northwest Territories (NWT).
ECE created an Action Plan to Improve JK-12 Student Outcomes in the NWT that follows ECE’s approach to improving student outcomes; first starting with actions that focus on quality early learning and child care, through to those actions that support a quality JK-12 education system.
NWT Arts Strategy
The creative community plays a central role in preserving the NWT’s arts, cultures, heritages, and languages, diversifying our local economies, and sharing the beauty of NWT art far and wide. The NWT Arts Strategy 2021-2031 sets out a vision for how we will help to support the creative sector for the next 10 years.
NWT Indigenous Languages Action Plan
The NWT Indigenous Languages Action Plan: A Shared Responsibility was launched in 2018, and outlines the actions, deliverables, and measures of success that promote, protect, and revitalize Indigenous languages in the NWT. The Action Plan was developed to meet two overarching goals:
- Language Revitalization – highlighting the responsibility of all people in the NWT to maintain the strength of Indigenous languages as a means of communication and as a connection to culture; and
- Language Access – maintaining that all people in the NWT have access to high quality public services in all official Indigenous languages.
