OUR VISION

To increase the level of support and educational outcomes for our Band operated schools, staff and our First Nation learners through advocacy with the government of Canada, First Nation government and building relationships with our educational partners.

OUR PRINCIPLES

COMMUNITY

Education responsibility rests with each First Nation family and their government. Community schools are best positioned to provide a culturally oriented learning environment that fosters a positive self-identity and lifelong success.

FAIRNESS

TNEGI believes in providing all of its support functions impartially and based upon clear criteria that addresses need and equity.

TRANSPARENCY

TNEGI commits to transparency in all operations in order to ensure accountability and retain the trust of its member communities.

CULTURE

Language, tradition and culture are indispensable components of a quality education; TNEGI places a priority on the inclusion of culture in the classroom.

INNOVATION

Given the challenge of chronic underfunding in education, TNEGI will pioneer efforts to seek original and progressive ways to move First Nations education forward.

PRACTICAL & PROFESSIONAL

First Nations education systems exist in complex political, economic and social environments; TNEGI is dedicated to confronting those challenges in an informed, professional manner.
