Aboriginal Post Secondary Education Strategy and Action Plan, Ministry of Education

Date Posted: 2014-11-06

Strategic Context

The Government of British Columbia is forging a new government-to-government relationship with Aboriginal people based on reconciliation, recognition and respect. This New Relationship will reshape our social and economic landscape and create a more inclusive and prosperous future for all British Columbians. A key piece of the New Relationship is the engagement of Aboriginal people and communities in the planning of social and economic policy and programs that shape their lives and choices.

In November 2005 the Province, the Federal Government, and the Leadership Council representing the First Nations of British Columbia signed the Transformative Change Accord to: close the social and economic gap between First Nations and other British Columbians, reconcile Aboriginal rights and title with those of the Crown, and establish a new relationship based upon mutual respect and recognition.

A new shared path will provide opportunity for institutions and communities to come together as partners and actively engage in the transformative change of Aboriginal post-secondary education. It calls for a new focus on opportunities for the future and a commitment to collaboration and change.

The Aboriginal post-secondary education strategy will fulfill the post-secondary component of the Transformative Change Accord. As part of this partnership, key Aboriginal groups, through the BC Aboriginal Post-Secondary Education and Training (MOU) Partners, provide advice and direction to enhance coordination of initiatives. Aboriginal organizations and communities work collaboratively with public post secondary institutions in developing and implementing Aboriginal Service Plans and Aboriginal Special Projects initiatives. Representatives from Aboriginal groups participate in working groups and policy tables (e.g., performance indicators). In addition specific accountabilities will be agreed upon with Aboriginal communities participating in capacity building initiatives, and private Aboriginal institutions engaged in affiliation agreements.
