REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

Invitation to work with Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Education department on developing a First Nations Student Continuity of Care Framework

The deadline for proposals is December 31, 2021.

NAN is seeking proposals from qualified consultants/consulting firms who have a strong background and demonstrated knowledge and experience working effectively with First Nations communities, extensive knowledge and experience in First Nations education and the unique needs of NAN First Nations, and the ability to build capacity for change and lead projects.

The proposal must include a detailed plan for engagement with NAN First Nations leadership/Tribal Councils/communities/education organizations and provincial district school board representatives in developing a framework specific to First Nations Student Continuity of Care when a NAN high school student transitions from an off-reserve high school back to their on-reserve community. The proposal must also include goals, objectives, activities, timelines, and resources needed to complete the work starting November 2021 to April 2022.

The focus will be on First Nations and Inquest identified priorities, strategic actions over the short, medium, and long term for developing a First Nations Student Continuity of Care Framework, and on the creation of a regional structure to support and coordinate First Nations governance. The work will also create a First Nations human resource strategy that promotes and builds on existing capacities, assets, and relationships of First Nation Tribal Councils/communities/education organizations and provincial district school boards.

Successful applicants will work closely with the Education department, the Education Committee, and the Continuity of Care Working Group to ensure integration and inclusion of service delivery challenges and realities faced by northern First Nations.
