Education Partnership Program

The Education Partnership Program facilitates the implementation of the Nova Scotia Mi'kmaw Kina'matnewey agreement. The project included sixteen Mi'kmaw Nation schools and over twenty public schools attended by on-reserve residents for N.S. Mi'kmaw Nations. Activities impact over 4,2000 Mi'kmaq students, including over 2,730 from MK communities.

The priority areas attempt to address numeracy and literacy improvement levels in testing, high school performance, preparedness for post-secondary education, and Mi'kmaq language retention and enhancement activities and materials.

Successfully completed projects include a Provincial Planning Committee, Development Mi'kmaw Nation Enhance Services, Building Legends, Mutual Sharing Comm Project, Traditional Garden, Coordination of partnership activities, and transition of students to provincial schools.
