The Indigenous Education (First Nations, Metis and Inuit) Program serves to realize the success of all Indigenous students. The purpose of this section is to assist teachers in developing and applying foundational knowledge about First Nations, Métis and Inuit for the benefit of all students.

The information and resources provided in this section are intended as supplementary materials. Teachers wishing to increase their knowledge, and the knowledge of their students, should always ensure they are reaching out to their local Indigenous community in order to build relationships and get support.
