15 The Governor of the Council may make any regulations or orders that the Governor of the Council considers necessary for the administration of the provisions of this Act, the Agreement or other arrangements related to the administration of the Agreement. The establishment of an Anishinabek education system is seen by participating communities in the Anishinabek Nation as an act of reconciliation and an opportunity to support an education system designed by Anishinabeks for the benefit of Anishinabek students. Through this agreement, First Nations will create the Anishinabek Education System, a system developed by an Anishinabek to provide culturally relevant and community-appropriate educational programs and services for the benefit of current and future generations of Anishinabek students. This includes promoting the culture and language of Anishinaabe. Education means educational programs and services generally offered to students from junior kindergarten to the end of secondary education in Ontario. (educational) Participating First Nations have also signed a Complementary Education Agreement with the Government of Ontario. The Master Education Agreement shares the vision of a new relationship that supports the success and well-being of Anishinabek students in the Anishinabek education system and in the provincially funded education system. 8 (1) A participating First Nation shall provide or arrange for the training of students to the extent provided for in the agreement. ANEA is the first of its kind in Ontario and, due to the number of First Nations involved, the largest educational self-management agreement in Canada. ANEA supports the Anishinabek Nation`s vision of a quality ESA that promotes an Anishinaabe culture and language and improves educational outcomes for Anishinabek students. After the COMING into force of the ANEA, certain education provisions of the Indian Act will no longer apply to the 23 NFPs. Decision-making authority over education will be in the hands of First Nations under the ESA. A Master Education Agreement signed in August by the Anishinabek Nation and the Government of Ontario recognizes Anishinabek`s jurisdiction over education on and off reserve, from junior kindergarten to Grade 12, as well as administrative control over the funding of post-secondary education.
“The adoption of this law comes after 20 years of negotiations and a two-year ratification process. Under this Act, Canada recognizes the jurisdiction of the First Nation. We must now take the words out of the side and put in place an education system that supports the success and well-being of Anishinabek students. This is an exciting time for Anishinabek First Nations,” says Tracey O`Donnell. “I am pleased that Deputy Grand Council Chief Glen Hare, KEB Board members and technical assistance staff have successfully piloted this historic bill through the final phase of the Canadian legislative process,” said Patrick Madahbee, Chief of the Anishinabek National Grand Council. “For so long, it was a dream to have your own education system, but today we are taking a step forward on the path to building better education and achieving a better future for our Anishinabek youth.” 7 A participating First Nation may, to the extent provided for in the agreement, enact laws that respect the education applicable to its reserve, as set out in subsection 2(1) of the Indian Act. Participating First Nation means a group called in the calendar.
