Since 1977, ONECA has attracted many people from diverse backgrounds who are committed to Native perspectives in education.  Moving forward, ONECA continues to support learners under the Native Counsellors Education Training Program (NCTP) with new initiatives planned for our successful Transitions project and for growing need for cultural training embedded within the workshops and training that ONECA currently delivers.  Curriculum for these projects is complete for the NCTP program.  The curriculum for the remaining projects are under development.

Therefore, we are inviting expressions of interest for teachers/instructors, curriculum writers, guest speakers, traditional teachers, and resource people.

Preference will be given to Indigenous candidates who demonstrate a high commitment to collaborative community work as ONECA is committed to continue to:

: foster understanding and respect for indigenous people;

: ensure success of indigenous learners;

: maintain the integration of indigenous cultures, approaches, and perspectives in the curriculum.
