First Nations, Métis, & Inuit Education

We strive to support and enhance the educational experience and achievement of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students.

We do this by helping schools develop a holistic understanding of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures, worldviews, histories, and current realities.  We believe this approach fosters relationships that welcome, nurture, and honour individual student’s stories and cultures and supports the weaving of culture and curriculum to enhance the learning for all students.

We collaborate with district staff, First Nations communities, Métis and Inuit organizations, and stakeholders to develop strategies, resources, programs and initiatives that support personal growth, high school completion, and career pathways to post-secondary studies or the world of work.

Reconciliation in Education

We can all take steps to make healing through reconciliation possible. On Friday, June 3, 2016, we hosted a Reconciliation in Education event to celebrate the anniversary of the closing ceremony of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The event is available to view in the link below.
