Kwayaciiwin Education Resource Centre and Co-ordinated by New Vision Unlimited

KERC is a multi-faceted organization dedicated to student success, providing quality, comprehensive support services to First Nation schools in the Sioux Lookout area.

As First Nations asserted control of education and began to operate their own schools, Kwayaciiwin was formed as a response to supporting those schools. We work with local education authorities, chiefs and councils, education directors, principals, teachers, and classroom assistants to support student success.

Anishinine/Anishinaabe language and culture remain at the heart of Kwayaciiwin’s work, rooted in the knowledge that students with a strong sense of identity and belonging will thrive.

Services include coaching and mentoring of school staff, curriculum development, school success planning, learning assessments, student performance data collection, special education support, professional development, and assistance with information technology and management.

New Vision Unlimited is a not-for-profit community development organization committed to creating innovative and sustainable change that positively impacts the social, economic and cultural fabric of organizations, schools, communities, and businesses. We have operated in Northwestern Ontario since 2006 and Muskoka since 2014, and understand the challenges facing communities are complex. As a result, we bring together people from various sectors (education, health, business, social, government and First Nations) to examine issues in their entirety, paying special attention to how things fit together to create present-day reality. We specialize in collaborative planning that engages people in creating solutions that work for them. We look for opportunities to innovate, then draw from our network of collaborators to co-create initiatives takes aim at the root causes. We have extensive experience creating alternative education initiatives that address mental health, social and academic success using experiential and engaging approaches. If you have an idea you would like to bring to life within your school or community, we would be pleased to support you in making this a reality!
