Indigenous Education Advisory Committee


Indigenous Education is a shared responsibility. With the motivation to unify learning communities, the Indigenous Education Advisory Committee (IEAC) advises HPEDSB on matters relating to Indigenous Education, as well as the implementation of the Ministry's Fist Nations, Métis and Inuit Education Policy Framework through the Board Action Plan.

Purpose of the Committee

  • To provide the Indigenous communities an effective voice on matters relating to Indigenous students within the board.
  • To provide a forum where educational needs from the broader Indigenous education community can be brought forward.
  • To make recommendations to the board with respect to any matter affecting the development and delivery of programs and services for Indigenous students of the board.
  • To support and promote Indigenous Educational programming in the board and broader community.
  • To identify areas that may require advocacy and awareness to strengthen the linkages between educational programs and services.
  • To review the financial statements from provincial funding and tuition agreements as they relate to First Nations Educational Service Agreements.
