WE BELIEVE IN COMMUNITY-DRIVEN EDUCATION 

The First Nations Technical Institute (FNTI) is an Indigenous-owned and governed post-secondary institute founded in programming rooted in Indigegogy and Indigenous ways of knowing. FNTI is a registered charitable organization, accredited by the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC), and a member of Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).   

Our programs are culturally-driven and intensively delivered, which provides learners with the ability to study quality programming while maintaining family, community and career commitments. 

FNTI has over 3,000 graduates with certificate, diploma and degree credentials issued in partnership with recognized Ontario colleges and universities and will begin the delivery of standalone bachelor’s degrees in 2020 in accordance with the Indigenous Institute Act, 2017. 

FNTI serves 175 of 667 First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities across Canada, and 102 of 129 in Ontario. The institute welcomes approximately 300 students annually, most of whom are the recipients of band sponsorship for post-secondary education. These band sponsorships for community members often include tuition support, living allowance for full-time learners and book/supplies allowance. 

This year, FNTI programs are being delivered in Cochrane, Oneida, Peterborough, Rama, Aamjiwnaang, Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, and Bkejwanong. 

FNTI celebrates a 93% graduation rate, and alumni have a 98% employment rate. 

We can tailor an education plan for your community and/or organization in the location of your choice. We would love to come meet with you and your team to consider partnership potentials moving forward. Please contact Jessica Charette, director of community partnerships at 613.813.6893 or jessicac@fnti.net for more information. 

Examples of programs delivered in community, to meet community needs include:
