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.
