Kanaka Bar sees education and training as the key to achieving community's goals of being vibrant, self-sufficient and sustainable. Building human capacity is the only way to achieve a better quality of life for members of Kanaka Bar.
The department is committed to provide assistance to Kanaka Bar members, both on and off reserve, to achieve their goals and aspirations by delivering quality educational programs and services. Our goal is to facilitate educational programming for all age groups, all the way from pre-schoolers to adults. We also support students attending different educational institutions around the province.
Besides providing educational programming to membership, the department also contributes to the advancement of education through participation on various regional and provincial organizations that advocate for First Nations education. An example of that is our involvement with the First People’s Education Council (FPEC) and the School District #74 who work together to enhance the learning of all First Nation students. Another example of our involvement on advocacy level is our good relationship with First Nation Education Steering Committee (FNESC).
