Industry Canada First Nations SchoolNet
This website is the result of the work of Industry Canada with six non-profit First Nations SchoolNet Regional Management Organizations to deliver Internet services to First Nations schools.
Any First Nations school under the Government of Canada's jurisdiction is eligible to participate in the program. The following are the six management organizations:
First Nations Education Council
Keewatin Tribal Council
