First Nations, Inuit and Métis Essential Skills Inventory Project

Extending Promising Practice: Updating the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Essential Skills Inventory Project

FIMESIP aims to build a knowledge-sharing platform for individuals and organizations from across Canada working in literacy and essential skills (LES) for Indigenous people. This Community of Practice can use FIMESIP to share best practices, learn from each other’s innovations, and support development of the field.


The FIMESIP National Advisory Group helped make this project possible
