The First Nations with Schools Collective (FNWSC) received funding to conduct a broad engagement on education as it pertains to First Nations and their right to establish and control their education systems as per the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) Article 14.1.
The engagement process will provide the FNWSC and the broader community with an opportunity to inform Canada’s action plan. The development of an action plan for UNDRIP's implementation is a required task of Canada as part of the new United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (UNDRIPA) law passed in June 2021.   

The goal of this engagement is to ensure First Nations' perspectives and expectations are heard and prioritized when the government sets its strategy to achieve the objectives of UNDRIP. 
We invite you to participate in this brief survey to gather your thoughts on what First Nations education means to you and your community.  We will compile responses into a report which will be provided to the government of Canada.                                                                                                                            
This survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. Your decision to participate in the survey is voluntary. The information you provide is confidential and will not be linked to you in any way. We thank you in advance for your time.
