Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC) – 21st Century Compentencies

Standard

21st-century-skills

In February 2016, the Ontario Ministry of Education presented the 21st Century Foundation Document which included a draft set of competencies synthesized from the latest research: http://www.edugains.ca/resources21CL/About21stCentury/21CL_21stCenturyCompetencies.pdf

In July 2016, the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC) approved a set of competencies based on input from provinces and territories. CMEC has approved the full release of these competencies and their descriptors (attached).

Although the CMEC competencies are endorsed by the Ontario Minister of Education, they do not represent an Ontario framework. However, they will inform Ontario’s work in the development of its own framework moving forward.
