Indigenous Education Advisory Council

What is the Indigenous Education Advisory Council (IEAC)?

 The purpose of Indigenous Education Advisory Council (IEAC) is to:

  • Provide advice on matters related to Indigenous education, initiatives, cultures and traditions;
  • Assist in identifying community needs;
  • Offer input on the annual First Nation, Métis, and Inuit Board Action Plan.

IEAC is composed of various stakeholders from Indigenous parents, community members, Teachers, Principals, Superintendents of Education, to local knowledge keepers with a vested interest in Indigenous education.

IEAC’s primary goal is to provide HPCDSB with advice on all matters regarding the implementation of the Indigenous education policy: Ontario First Nation, Metis and Inuit Education Policy Framework. Through this policy framework, the common goal is that all students in Ontario will have the knowledge and appreciation of contemporary and traditional First Nation, Métis and Inuit traditions, cultures and perspectives.
