About Us

The Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre Inc. (MFNERC) provides the province’s leading education, administration, technology, language and culture services to First Nations schools in Manitoba.

Educator Resources

These are free resources for families or teachers to use. Many were developed by MFNERC staff, however, there are some from our partners and allies.

Learning Hub

The MFNERC Learning Hub houses all your general learning supports, educational activities, and online learning events.

Our priority is to help educators and parents access the information you need in one place

Services & Delivery

MFNERC has developed many academic programs and projects to meet the specific needs of First Nations schools in Manitoba.

Programs

Working directly with First Nation-run schools is at the heart of what we do. To this end, many services we offer fall under the category “in-school” programs.

Remote Learning Hub

The Manitoba First Nations School System (MFNSS) is included in this Remote Learning Hub and our partnering First Nations are able to access resources submitted by the facilitators in their respective areas. These resources are identified as MFNSS but are accessible for all others who utilize the Remote Learning Hub.
