Taking Action for First Nations Post- Secondary Education: Access, Opportunity and Outcomes: A Discussion Paper

This paper, written by the First Nations Post-Secondary Education: Access, Opportunity, and Outcomes Panel, highlights the history of Post-Secondary Education program funding in Canada and the long standing resistance by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) to provide the resources necessary to ensure that First Nation students can access and complete the higher education they are entitled to as affirmed by the spirit and intent of Treaties signed in exchange for the sharing of our territories and lands. The panel strongly assert that a strategy is required to facilitate the efforts of First Nations leaders, educators, and program support staff to preserve and protect the PSE Program and ensure that essential dollars are made available to First Nation learners and Indigenous educators.
