Ontario Health Curriculum Meeting

The East End Toronto Parent Advocacy Group is a community advocacy group that was formed this past summer as a response to the Ontario Government’s rollback of the 2015 Grades 1-8 Health curriculum (and replacing with a curriculum created in 1998).

They are creating a larger group of parents/guardians from the east end of Toronto interested in working together to advocate for an inclusive, modern, and evidence-based curriculum. And they are hosting an event on November 26 at Eastview to discuss next steps of action, initiatives, and lobbying efforts

When: Monday November 26th at 7pm
Where: Eastview Community Centre. (86 Blake Street)
