Aboriginal Education in British Columbia

There are over 60,000 students in B.C.’s school system who self-identify as being of Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) ancestry.

Recognizing that our students are our future, Aboriginal Education seeks to:

  • Improve the success of these students
  • Support all students learning about Aboriginal peoples
  • Help teachers in their efforts to bring Aboriginal knowledge into their teaching practice.

In the Classroom

Several B.C. school districts have incorporated Aboriginal education into lesson plans and learning activities for all students. Learn about the teaching tools available to educators or lookup which school districts offer Aboriginal programs.
