As part of its regular review processes, ECE is investigating possibilities for curriculum renewal. Change is inevitable, as the NWT Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 (JK-12) curriculum is out of date and needs to be renewed.
In addition, the NWT uses a significant portion of Alberta’s curriculum, which is undergoing large-scale changes to every subject and grade from K-12.

ECE is currently in the research and engagement phase of JK-12 curriculum renewal; this includes exploring possibilities for a partnership with another western province. Any curriculum implemented or used in the NWT must meet the needs and interests of students and communities. It must be a curriculum that is grounded in Indigenous world views and reflect the identities of our northern children and support them in becoming capable people.
Any changes to NWT JK-12 curriculum will be carefully considered to ensure it aligns with the territory’s education goals.
