Grants for Sustainable FN Projects
Schools were given the opportunity to apply for financial
support for ongoing, sustainable, cross-curricular, experiential projects that
incorporate First Nation Education. We are excited to be able to support 10 of
the 21 projects that were submitted. We hope to grow this in the future after
looking at this ‘pilot’ project.
