I’ve linked an article from the CBC website from June 2015 that highlights the BC government’s new commitment to Aboriginal content in the new curriculum drafts released this past summer.
In the article it mentions how the impetus for this integration in the new curriculum came from the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
As cynical as I am of the current BC government, I have had a look at the proposed curriculum and it does go a long way towards inclusion of different worldviews.

The HAWD is a report put out by BC’s ministry of Education each year. I’ve linked the 2014 report. HAWD stands for: How Are We Doing? This question is asked in relation to BC’s commitment to Aboriginal Education and Aboriginal graduation rates.
If you like detached, faceless government reports with colourful graphs and charts with lots of numbers that show trends, then this document is a must read!
All kidding aside, this document is very visually telling as it shows in shocking detail just what the state of Aboriginal Education is like.
