The foundation of the First Peoples’ Circle on Education is rooted in four decades of Indigenous education at Canadore College, an institution renowned for delivering high-quality programs and services to Indigenous learners. Operating as a not-for-profit entity, the Circle is dedicated to bolstering and empowering Indigenous communities, enabling them to autonomously provide services and address socio-economic challenges. This commitment ensures that Indigenous learners have the opportunity to pursue post-secondary education. 

Guided by Indigenous values and principles centered on family, community, and healthy relationships, the First Peoples’ Circle on Education has implemented distinctive approaches that align with these core beliefs. These approaches have yielded numerous successful projects and programs across Canada. 

We have carefully designed an extensive range of services to aid Indigenous organizations in their educational pursuits. Our offerings span from academic resources and mentorship programs to culturally enriching events and community engagement. Our goal is to foster an environment where Indigenous knowledge and traditions are not just respected but also embraced and celebrated.
