Aboriginal Education in British Columbia

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.
