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.
