The department supports each Nation Member, on- and off-reserve, to reach their educational and employment goals. The department works in partnership with school districts, post-secondary institutions, and other First Nations to advocate for programs and services related to education, employment, and training from private, provincial, and national sources.
Ta7lnew̓ás could be interpreted as ‘learning with each other’, such as a group of people learning together.
