First Nations Student Success Program

First Nation Student Success Program

The First Nation Student Success Program (FNSSP) is a proposal-driven program designed to help First Nation educators onreserve (Kindergarten to Grade 12) and improve school results. The Program supports projects that increase students' achievement levels in reading and writing (literacy), mathematics (numeracy), and encourages students to remain in school (student retention).
The FNSSP is a key component of the Reforming First Nation Education Initiative, which is setting the foundation for long-term reform of First Nation education. The FNSSP is aligned with the Government's long-term goal of providing First Nation youth on-reserve with access to a quality education that encourages them to stay in school and graduate with the skills they need to enter the labour market in order to pursue their career aspirations.
