Representation and advocacy

The FNEC engages in representational activities and political lobbying at the regional, national and international levels to achieve its vision and fulfill its mission to defend the educational interests of all 22 of its member communities. The FNEC is continually on the lookout for platforms where it can voice the concerns of its members on major issues such as the band school funding formula, the Special Education Program, Bill C-33, and access to information and communications technologies.

The FNEC establishes and maintains relations with other First Nations organizations, educational institutions, public organizations, foundations, as well as the provincial and federal governments.

In dealings with government authorities, the FNEC asserts the needs of First Nations communities to ensure that they receive the attention and resources they deserve.

The FNEC also conducts educational activities and awareness campaigns in schools and among members of the general public.

Several of our publications, including reports, analyses, and legal opinions, can be found under the Library tab.
