The 10th Annual Western Canadian First Nations Education Administrators Conference will take place February 24th – 27th, 2014 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at TCU Place.
Ten years ago, at an FSIN Education Directors Meeting, the conversation centered on challenges that face Directors and Education Boards. Global issues such as governance, finance, and effective pedagogy for First Nations were discussed.
At that meeting we believed that holding an annual forum that focused on resolving some of these challenges from a Western Canadian perspective would be the most effective way of sharing and learning.
The inaugural event took place in Saskatoon and attracted around 200 delegates from across Western Canada. Since that time, the location has been rotated every year amongst Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. The location has changed however the theme has remained constant: improving outcomes for First Nations Students.
