The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) is pleased to manage Indigenous Services Canada’s Innovations in Education Program for the BC region.

The Innovations in Education Program aims to enhance educational outcomes of First Nation Students (K-12), consistent with the purpose and principles of the BC Tripartite Education Agreement. This program is intended to allow BC First Nations to implement new education programs, strategies, and technologies, and develop evidence-based solutions to improve educational outcomes that can be shared widely.

All First Nations in BC are eligible to submit a proposal for funding through this new program.

Key Dates

Proposals are due November 12, 2021.
