Alberta Education is committed to improving education outcomes and creating opportunities for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students in Alberta.
First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education
Our goal is to ensure all students have equitable opportunities for success. Targeted supports and close collaboration are required to realize the vision that all First Nations, Métis and Inuit students in Alberta achieve or exceed the educational outcomes set for Alberta students.
We work with partners to:
- Provide supports for First Nations, Métis and Inuit student success
- Ensure all Alberta students are knowledgeable, understanding and respectful of the rich diversity of First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures, languages and histories; the importance of Treaties; and the legacy of residential schools
- Engage and support First Nations, Métis and Inuit in fulfilling their vision for a K-12 education system that honours Indigenous history, cultures, languages and perspectives
- Build strong relationships with schools and school authorities; First Nations and First Nation organizations; the Metis Settlements General Council; the Métis Nation of Alberta; Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada; and other ministries; to support the success of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students
