Vision, Mission & Values


Matawa First Nations delivers quality, accessible and student-centered education in a culturally appropriate environment to accommodate diverse needs and to ensure success for our children’s future. We offer regional capacity in education and training and promote learning to people of all ages, ensuring self-awareness, a healthy workforce and the nurturing of future community leaders.  


With the support of our leaders, elders, parents and youth, we will identify and foster the skills and resources learners’ need for future success in life, including those that promote academic success, cultural appreciation, self-confidence and creativity.  


Education is one of the three strategic strengths that the Matawa First Nations are seeking to build over the next 5 years. Education is considered to be vital to the progress of individuals and the Matawa-region as a whole by the present day leaders. It is widely supported that education will provide the foundation for success in school, at work and throughout the community and region- and that it will foster innovations that directly benefit the economy, society and individuals’ quality of life. Education is also considered the key to personal opportunity. It is agreed that education gives people confidence, improves their self-reliance and allows them to discover and achieve their full potential while improving overall economic and social well-being.
