We acknowledge the traditional territories of the First Nation people across Canada, and the significance of the land to the indigenous identity. We recognize the value and benefit of the natural environment as the the ultimate traditional First Nation learning environment, to ground the students in 'Place', ground them in 'who they are', and prepare them to go out in the world.

Closing the Funding Gap for First Nation Education Facilities
We have created a series of workshops designed to empower First Nations to understand and be in control of the key components of a study that impact school funding, to lead the process of accurately assessing school space requirements, and to obtain the appropriate consultants and services for each phase of the work.
