TEFA

Tripartite Education Framework Agreement

If your First Nation has an on-reserve K-12 school, then it is good to keep up to date about the Tripartite Education Framework Agreement (TEFA), a five-year agreement that came into effect September 1, 2012. The First Nations Schools Association and First Nations Education Steering Committee are committed to supporting communities and schools with TEFA implementation and we are sharing information at several upcoming events, including our Regional Sessions.
