About Us

Quick Overview

In 1994, through contribution from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, the First Nations Education Initiative was formed, consisting of 11 of 15 New Brunswick First Nations communities.  From 1994-1999, the member communities effectively collaborated on efforts to address problems facing First Nations students and a number of key milestones were achieved

Our mission is to establish and maintain an educational jurisdictional model for First Nations education, which will result in improved capacity for First Nations educators ultimately leading to improvements in the educational outcomes for all First Nations students attending Band Operated and Provincial schools.
