New Paths for Education

The New Paths for Education program provides funding to strengthen First Nation Education and improve the quality of education in First Nation schools. As of 2011-2012, New Paths was consolidated to include First Nation SchoolNet, Parental and Community Engagement, and Teacher Recruitment and Retention.

The objectives of the New Paths for Education program are to:
  • Strengthen First Nation education management and governance capacity through local capacity and educational institutional development;
  • Improve the effectiveness of classroom instruction through curriculum and language development, pedagogical improvements, Information and Communications Technology (ICT);
  • Support parental and community engagement in the education of children and youth which is conducive to a supportive learning environment;
  • Assist band-operated schools to recruit and retain qualified teachers and educators and provide them with professional development opportunities; and
  • Enhance Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in the school.
