Education Programming

As presented at the AGM, our Community has forged new relationships with the various school boards both local and outside of District of Thunder Bay with the assistance of Bimose Tribal Council.  From these new relationships the Community will be continuing its ongoing practice of utilizing those individuals who wish to participate in this program to submit a "Skills & Employment Assets Survey" which can be found by clicking the link below.  The program will provide educational knowledge from an Indigenous worldview.  The opportunity allows members to share their skills, knowledge and experience with those students from the program.  

Skills & Employment Assets Survey (Click to fill out survey)


This program survey is available to all membership of Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation. The Early Literacy Program embraces the traditional practice of educating our children in the Ojibway language through the interaction of storytelling and sharing of experience. This survey is a tool which will be used to assist in the direction and responsibility to the program by those who wish to participate. Community embraces ideas and practices which foster growth and guidance of our children.  We are accountable through our presence in creating a safe inviting environment and opportunity for our children as they develop positive connections through program involvement and connection to language.

This program has a great potential to assist our youth and adult learners who wish to obtain their Grade 12 or GED equivalence. The opportunity being provided will assist in maintaining financial security and elevate the education levels of our community members who wish to participate within this venture between Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation and Confederation College.  The survey allows participants to identify what they need as well provides feedback to the Post-Secondary Advisor in assisting the participants in reaching their education goals.

The purpose of this Shared Education Service Initiative Survey is to determine, through community collaboration and discussion, how we can improve student educational outcomes in all our First Nations while supporting the Anishinaabe Language, culture and traditions.  The overall goals of the Shared Education Services Initiatives are:

     1.     The development of Anishinaabe language and Culture programs and curriculum.

     2.     To ensure better education results for our students.

     3.     To increase funding for our schools to match or exceed current provincial levels.

     4.     To increase Community control of education.

     5.     To increase parent and Community engagement.

Please use the link below to download a copy of the survey.  Once the survey is completed, you can forward it to Mike Ignace at the Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation Administration Office or by emailing it to
