With the support of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, the Northwest Nations Education Council provides educational services for member Band schools in Saskatchewan

Established in 2005, the council operates as an arms-length education authority, working with teachers to focus on improving student performance by:


  • Strengthening the effectiveness of classroom instruction
  • Improving cultural programs in order to strengthen the identities of First Nations people
  • Developing programs that actively involve families and community members

Again, through the NNEC, the BTC has established a leading model for education in Canada.
