Program Message

The Ministry of Education has identified Aboriginal education as one of its key priorities with two specific goals: Improving student achievement among First Nation, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) students, and close the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students in the following areas:

  • Literacy and numeracy
  • Retention of students in school
  • Graduation rates
  • Advancement to postsecondary studies

The Aboriginal Education Advisory Committee (AEAC) was established in Niagara in 2009. This is a partnership between Niagara Catholic District School Board and the District School Board of Niagara. Members of this committee include the Aboriginal Student Services Departments at Brock University and Niagara College, as well as our local Aboriginal community.


Niagara Catholic District School Board’s Voluntary and Confidential Self-Identification Policy for First Nation, Métis and Inuit Students (301.9) was adopted in June 2011.
