Regional Education Agreement
A two percent cap on funding increases for First Nations education has been in place since 1996. For this reason, the FNEC has been working tirelessly to develop a funding formula with member communities since 2007. These efforts have resulted in a formula that meets the needs of First Nations students, aims to improve their academic success, accounts for their cultural, linguistic, demographic, and geographic circumstances, and ensures equitable funding distribution among all member communities.
On June 22, 2020, Minister Marc Miller and the FNEC Chiefs Committee agreed that the FNEC funding formula would become the basis for a regional education agreement.
A wide range of projects are headed by the FNEC. Take a look at all our sites.
