Self-Identification

Self-identification is voluntary to all students. It’s up to YOU if you wish to self-identify.

Our school division works with our local communities and our First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Support Team to ensure our self-identification program is private and confidential.

Why is it important to self-identify?

With this information, we are able to:

  • Determine what type of programming we should offer to ensure the success of all students.
  • Implement changes to offer education programs that are relevant to you or your child.
  • Provide resources and supports to enrich your or your child’s education.
  • Engage with elders in our local communities and develop partnerships.
  • Immerse First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures into the classroom with faith-based activities.
  • Provide professional development opportunities for staff.

We do not ask students for proof of Indigenous identity, and it is best determined by each individual family.
