“The First Nations Regional Early Childhood Development, Education and Employment Survey (FNREEES) is a nationally mandated First Nations Information Governance Centre survey respecting the principle of Ownership, Control, Access and Possession (OCAP). The survey is designed to generate evidence based results to support First Nation policy, program development and advocacy efforts in these priority areas at the local, regional and national levels. Through the approval of the Political Confederacy of the Chiefs in Ontario, the First Nations Education Coordination Unit and Regional Coordinator will work in partnership with First Nation
s communities and organizations to support implementation of the survey in Ontario.”
A pdf version of a brochure for this initiative is available HERE.
FNREEES is now complete. Once the data is analyzed, information about outcomes of the FNREEES will be posted. Thanks to all the communities for participating and to all the individuals who worked with our team gathering information.
