Education Projects

Management of Service Programs

The Education Commission passed a motion on April 19, 2004 to manage the following programs:

  • Aboriginal Language Initiative
  • First Nations/Inuit Youth Employment Strategies
  • Parental and Community Engagement Strategy
  • Teacher Recruitment and Retention
  • Centennial Scholarship Foundation

Each program outlines guidelines for written proposals which First Nation Communities submit to one of the five Tribal Councils and Bigstone Cree Nation. Proposals are then forwarded to Treaty 8 First Nations of Alberta Sub-Office in Edmonton and are processed. Funding is released based on proposal acceptance. When projects/programs are complete, a final written report summarizing activities is required.
