Concerted effort must be directed toward increasing and improving education outcomes and decreasing high school drop-out rates for Indigenous children. Investing in increased education for children at a younger age, developing parenting skills, encouraging family success and reunifying families by arming mothers with skills and language that will assist the family in navigating the education system are vital components of this.
The National Indigenous HIPPY Advisory Committee will develop a work plan, identify activities to address each recommendation and will approve clear timeframes to guide the completion of each task. It is recognized that a national Indigenous HIPPY framework is needed that includes fundamental principles for supporting First Nations, Urban First Nations, Inuit and Métis Communities that:
- May benefit from an awareness of Indigenous HIPPY.
- Have an interest in learning about the benefits of Indigenous HIPPY.
- Desire implementation but lack capacity or adequate resources towards implementation.
