Métis Early Learning

Rupertsland Centre for Teaching and Learning (RCTL) is committed to supporting and developing Métis-centric education and ways of being for early learners. RCTL started developing early learning initiatives with community engagement and working with community-informed expert focus groups.

Early Learning Education Childcare Training (ELECT)

The ELECT program teaches participants authentic Métis ways of being and helps early learning educators weave appropriate Métis education into their early learning centres. The ELECT participants were selected using specific criteria to experience Métis culture, knowledge, and traditions by attending authentic Métis education-filled weekends at Métis Crossing, attending weekly virtual instructional meetings, and completing two online certificate courses.
