Keewatinase, Department of Indigenous Education

Keewatinase offers students with Indigenous ancestry unique opportunities to become a teacher in a supportive environment. We offer programs for students interested in teaching primary/junior grades, intermediate/senior grades, or Native Language as a Second Language in primary and senior grades in Ontario.

Our programs combine in-class learning with experiential community-based learning opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills to teach Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. Keewatinase works closely with each student on their educational journey to become a professional teacher certified by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT).
