Deepening Knowledge.

Our Partners


The Deepening Knowledge project collaborates with many other groups working to improve the lives of aboriginal people and help educate people about aboriginal traditions, history, and pedagogy. Some of our partners are listed below.


Promising Practices in Aboriginal Education is supported by the Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative (MAEI), whose guiding vision is to empower Aboriginal students with the knowledge and confidence they need to complete secondary school and to continue their education. They offer monthly outreach events, and help educators share their successful stories and approaches to educating Aboriginal youth.


First Nation House (FNH) is a centre at U of T that provides a number of culturally supportive student services and programs to Aboriginal students and the general university community. You can also check out their online and print publication, First Nation House Magazine.



Our Partnerships

This year the Deepening Knowledge Project collaborated with youth of the Native Learning Centre of Toronto who acted as consultants on website artwork and image design.  The youth have contributed artwork and photographs that are of relevance and import to them as young urban Indigenous youth.  Our website will have a new look in May of 2014 thanks to the amazing work of the NLC youth and special thanks as well to the NLC staff for their support of the project and work with the youth to provide the project consultation. You can read the youth biographies at     (available in May, 2014).

Native Learning Centre is "a partnership with the Toronto District School Board. This program allows students to work at their own pace with one-on-one instruction, in a non-competitive environment.

The NLC is a classroom where Native youth can work towards a high school diploma through a flexible curriculum. The program is for youth aged 15 to 20 and encompasses grades 9 to 12, utilizing Ministry of Education approved curriculum." (from the website).
