Programs in Indigenous Communities

Frontier College is proud of its long history of respectful partnerships with First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) communities across Canada. For over 40 years, Frontier College has worked with various FNMI partners to create appropriate literacy programs that address the needs of individual communities. We work to reflect the culture and traditions of each community in our programs. 

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Final Report and Calls to Action show the injustices inflicted on FNMI communities during the residential school era. This has had a devastating impact on generations of FNMI Peoples. The Commission’s Final Report and Calls to Action reminds us that we each have a part to play in reconciliation efforts. These documents guide Frontier College and inform our work with FNMI communities and across our other literacy programs.

In partnering with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities, we strive to develop innovative and responsive programs that:

  1. Respect the identity, diversity, priorities, and aspirations of each community
  2. Lead to tangible and sustainable outcomes for FNMI children, youth, and adults
  3. Address the educational attainment gap between FNMI and non-FNMI students, and FNMI children and youth living both on-reserve and off-reserve
  4. Build local workforce skills that enable communities to participate in and maximize economic development opportunities
