Technical Advisory and Advocacy Services
The first language of the people is Anishininiimowin (also referred to as "Oji-Cree"). The communities want to maintain their language, culture and values. They also want their children to acquire and learn English as a second language and to understand and appreciate other cultures.
In order to fulfill these expectations, a bilingual/bicultural program entitled "LANGUAGES TOGETHER" has been developed.
Successful candidates must be in good standing (or in the process of obtaining membership) with the Ontario College of Teachers. Additional qualifications and/or experience in E.S.L., Special Education, Computers in the Classroom, Cooperative Learning and/or Native Studies and previous teaching experience in a northern First Nation setting are an asset but not a requirement. Teachers of First Nation ancestry are encouraged to apply.
