First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education Council

Visit the Council Website 

The primary purpose of the specialist council, open to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal teachers alike, will be to facilitate professional development related to First Nations, Métis and Inuit education. As well the specialist council could advocate for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and their issues; add capacity to the Alberta Teachers’ Association by providing indigenous ways of knowing; and develop Aboriginal resources for teachers across Alberta to use in their classrooms. It is hoped that the specialist council would also foster relationships with elders and spiritual advisors in each community to help bridge the gap between the community and local schools.
