Mary-Anne Neal is working closely with the Sahtu Dene communities of Fort Good Hope and Colville Lake to reimagine the education system in an effort to improve learning outcomes, raise academic standards, build leadership capacity and promote lifelong learning. 

Her recent visit to the Northwest Territories marks the first step in a long-term initiative that will engage learners of all ages in personal and community improvement projects. 

Barriers to success faced by Canada’s aboriginal population are already well documented. In this presentation, Mary-Anne will share the ways by which incorporating the principles of 21st Century Learning will support achievement of the goals set by the Dene people.
