Our Partners

The FNWSC is always interested in partnerships to support and advance the goal of jurisdiction over education in our communities. Our partners include:

Western University

Western's Faculty of Education leads the First Nations Community of Inquiry & Praxis (FNCIP) initiative on behalf of the FNWSC under the direction of Dr. Brent Debassige, Associate Professor and M'Chigeeng First Nation citizen. FNCIP is a group of Indigenous scholars invited to discuss topics significant to First Nations pedagogy and education.


The FNWSC would like to thank VanCity for being our first corporate sponsor. We appreciate your interest in supporting Indigenous student achievement and First Nations learning systems.


We are excited about our partnership with MakeWay, which provides much needed administration support to our fundraising efforts. MakeWay is a national leader in social change philanthropy.


Additional funding acknowledgement: FNWSC thanks the federal government for funding received through the Innovation in Education, Regional Education Agreements and Education Partnerships Program-Structural Readiness Grants for First Nations and First Nation affiliate organizations to build structural capacity in education.
