Indspire is a national Indigenous-led registered charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people for the long term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities, and Canada.

Our vision is to enrich Canada through Indigenous education and by inspiring achievement. In partnership with Indigenous, private and public sector stakeholders, Indspire educates, connects and invests in Indigenous people so they will achieve their highest potential.

The early years – from birth to age 8 – set the foundation for lifelong learning. Offering our children a wide range of quality experiences in the early years can help children become their best – physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.

The Aboriginal Head Start Association of British Columbia (AHSABC) is a non-profit society made up of the 12 urban Aboriginal Head Start (AHS) sites in BC, all of which are members of the AHSABC. We are dedicated to the development of Aboriginal children and their families, and we work in collaboration with other organizations and government to ensure consistent quality standards.

There are over 60,000 students in B.C.’s school system who self-identify as being of Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) ancestry.

Recognizing that our students are our future, Aboriginal Education seeks to:

  • Improve the success of these students
  • Support all students learning about Aboriginal peoples
  • Help teachers in their efforts to bring Aboriginal knowledge into their teaching practice.

The Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training provides leadership and direction for post-secondary education and skills training systems in British Columbia as well as labour market information and programs. Post-secondary education is key to supporting the aspirations of Aboriginal British Columbians – First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples – and their communities.
