Through our Voluntary and Confidential Self-Identification for First Nation, Métis and Inuit students policy and process, we will collect vital information that will help us:
- meet the learning and cultural needs of First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students
- increase participation of First Nation, Métis, and Inuit parents, students, communities, and organizations in working to support the academic success of First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students
- increase awareness among non-Aboriginal students, staff, and families about First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples
