The program is open to all students Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal as well as students living outside the division.

Our goal is to grow the Indigenous language classes each year by adding an additional grade. Therefore, in September of 2017 we look forward to opening up a Grade 4 Ojibwe and Cree class are so forth.
Offering Indigenous languages classes builds from a vision that was forged through our divisional PATH planning process. It was again outlined as a goal within our Aboriginal Education Policy (2013).
We believe the Indigenous Bilingual Program will give children the chance to trace the footsteps of their ancestors through language, culture and traditions.
