First Nation, Métis, and Inuit – Voluntary & Confidential Self-Identification – APC039
Reviewed/Revised: February 2020
It is the policy of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) to provide the opportunity for all First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students and their parents to voluntarily and confidentially self-identify so that supportive programming can be provided.
The WCDSB also supports the self-identification of all First Nation, Métis, and Inuit staff to provide information and guidance on Indigenous initiatives.
The WCDSB embraces a vision of Catholic Education, which proclaims: “Our Catholic Schools: Heart of the community ~ success for each and a place for all.”
In order to fulfil this vision, the mission of the WCDSB is: “As disciples of Christ, we educate and nurture hope in all learners to realize their potential to transform God’s world.”
