The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants is partnering with MAEI and school boards to mentor Aboriginal youth who have an aptitude or an interest in an accounting career.
The MAEI anticipates that in the future, pilot projects will be sponsored across Canada and that this will lead to a national project.
MAEI launched the Promising Practices in Aboriginal Education website WWW.
MAEI has initiated two elementary model school projects in partnership with Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation and Walpole Island First Nations in Southwestern Ontario.
The Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation has joined MAEI to support an early years component at Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation.
In February 2011, Free the Children and MAEI sponsored a campaign to highlight issues related to Aboriginal education in Canada.
MAEI is partnering with Ashoka Canada, the McConnell Foundation, the Counselling Foundation, the Royal Bank of Canada, the Trillium Foundation, the Donner Foundation, the Vancouver Foundation, and others to plan an initiative to find innovative and culturally appropriate strategies that promote excellence in education for First Nations, Inuit and Metis students across Canada.
