“FNEC’s philosophy is in line with its mission to contribute to the full empowerment of our educational structures. Moreover, through its programs, the FNEC values and promotes the knowledge and skills of First Nations, which favours the individual and collective development of First Nations. The FNEC also underlines the real principle of co-creation of this school as well as the establishment of an Indigenous leadership. This project is full of hope and is part of an innovative approach in which the FNEC is proud to be a partner.”
