The LNIB recognizes that investing in our youth is the single most important strategy to ensuring a prosperous future of our community. To support youth, the Education Department provides a number of programs and services to support students in the community including the school start-up allowance, career fairs, tutoring and post-secondary funding.

Education assistance – school supplies to K-12 students living on LNIB land, and books, tuition, living allowance to post-secondary students.

LNIB signed a Local Education Agreement with School District #58, for LNIB students attending the public school system in Merritt. If you would like a copy of the Local Education Agreement we do have copies in the Education office.

The education program also promotes the learning and use of our own language, our culture, our identity, and the wealth of traditional knowledge accumulated over millennia
