About the Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative (MAEI)
MAEI brings together Aboriginal organizations, the business community, post-secondary institutions, First Nation schools and provincially-funded school boards to implement programs to support Aboriginal students. MAEI’s goal is to support initiatives that improve education at the elementary and secondary levels for Aboriginal Canadians, with the belief that the development of skills will provide Aboriginal youth with an incentive to continue their education.

MAEI projects are chosen in discussion with the pertinent school boards, Aboriginal
leadership, Provincial and Territorial education authorities, and various national business communities.
