First Nations schools in BC began working toward the establishment of a collective support organization many years ago and the First Nations Schools Association (FNSA) was formally established as a non-profit society in 1996.

The FNSA represents and works on behalf of First Nations controlled schools in BC, and almost all of the First Nations schools in BC are members of the Association. The FNSA has a mandate to support those schools in creating effective, nurturing, and linguistically and culturally appropriate education environments that provide students with a positive foundation in all academic areas.

The FNSA works directly with its constituents and reports to its members at its Annual General Meeting (AGM). The FNSA Board of Directors includes regional representatives selected at each AGM.

FNSA Mission

The First Nations Schools Association will collaborate with First Nations schools to create nurturing environments that will develop learners’ pride and competence in their First Nations language and heritage and will equip them to realize their full potential, within self-governing First Nations communities.
