Education Information and Documents


If you are a current student or looking will be a future student here are some documents and links that may be of interest to you.

New or updated documents will be added when available.


I put a call out to all members to send in names of Grade 8 graduates and High School graduates. Our office would like to honour them by sharing their successes with our community via the Bear Fax.

The application form that is posted on the Education section of the website will be making a change on one form. Previously, applicants would sign a form regarding direct deposit that stated the information on file is correct. This is being changed to an actual banking document that can be found online or picked up directly at the bank. It is the same one used for Automatic Payroll Deposit.

We are slowly working on updates for the Bear Fax and other places that require it. Due to the quantity of work for my dual job, I am moving into a larger office to accommodate all the educational and cultural files. At this time of writing, I am in my new space.

Many thanks to Deputy Chief Les Nolan and Jayson for their work in preparing the office space to move in to.

The Post Secondary Education Officer has many links and networks that have meetings on a continual basis to stay apprised of all things concerning education. I am starting to chime in on some and it is incredible to be a part of such a large group of people dedicated to education at all levels. The following are a few examples.

The Ontario Native Education Counselling Association (ONECA) is founded upon principles that recognize that, although a variety of counselling and educational tools and programs exist in Ontario, the development of Native communities requires tools and programs designed specifically to improving Native Counselling and Education Services.

Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Education Committee is currently working on “Educational Jurisdiction”. This work will support negotiations with Canada for the 39 First Nations that signed on the Agreement in Principle. Each First Nation will strive to hire a Community based Coordinator whose roles will be to facilitate a community vision for a new Education System.

ICE is an Indigenous community-based committee provincially mandated to direct and monitor the work of Sault College with respect to Indigenous specific academic, training and support programs.

I am a presentation on cultural competency for MCBC Board of Directors on October 27. My goal now is to solidify the connections with all schools and their financial departments concerning tuitions. I do not want the stress of notices to be on the students. COVID19 again has had an impact on communication.

Welcome October!
