Coupled with continuing changes to First Nation education,this has created a need to enhance the Department’s capacity to effectively provide these supports and services. With a mandate from the Matawa Chiefs in Assembly, the Department is developing options for its organizational development that will allow it to continue carrying out this important work.
Strategic Planning Matawa Education is currently in the process of renewing their Regional 5 Year Strategic Plan for Education for 2014-2019.
