Implementation of the Plan of Action for Educational Integration and Intercultural Education - Program to Promote Intercultural Contact at School - Project Application Guide for Schools 2011-2012

The Plan of Action for Educational Integration and Intercultural Education proposes measures that schools can take to apply the principles and guidelines outlined in the Policy Statement on Educational Integration and Intercultural Education. The Ministère, through its Direction des services aux communautés culturelles (DSCC), agreed to establish a financial support program for school projects based on intercultural contact and exchange. These projects are designed to help students learn how to live together, and more specifically, to help them develop attitudes of openness and respect for diversity. The Program to Promote Intercultural Contact at School is part of the DSCC's mandate to promote the development of intercultural education in schools.
