Financial barriers are the biggest challenge Indigenous learners face when pursuing digital skills training. With your help, the Digital Skills Bursary Fund increases access to our Indigenous-designed digital skills training, creating important opportunities for Indigenous Peoples.

INDIGENOUS-DESIGNED DIGITAL SKILLS TRAINING

The First Nations Technology Council is an Indigenous-led, innovative non-profit mandated by First Nations leadership in British Columbia. We work to advance digital literacy, improve internet connectivity and provide guidance on data and digital technology for all 204 First Nations across the province.

Grounded in Indigenous culture, wisdom, and ways of being, our digital skills training programs take a tailored approach to education. We also offer learners financial and cultural support, equipment, and career services. To date, we've served over 1,300 Indigenous Peoples across BC and observed a 73% completion rate—35% higher than non-Indigenous training programs among Indigenous Learners.

CONNECTING INDIGENOUS PEOPLES TO A DIGITAL FUTURE

In BC, there are more than 120,000 tech jobs, but less than 1% are held by people who identify as Indigenous, First Nations, or Métis. Unfortunately, financial barriers are the most significant challenge preventing Indigenous Peoples from pursuing tech training opportunities according to our recent multi-year labour market study.

With your help, the Digital Skills Bursary Fund increases access to our Indigenous-designed digital skills training, creating important opportunities for Indigenous participation and leadership in technology.

TAKE A MEANINGFUL STEP TOWARD RECONCILIATION. DONATE TODAY.

Our goal is to deliver impactful digital skills training to at least 350 Indigenous learners every year. Your donation will help us reach this goal by increasing the number of Indigenous learners who can enrol in our life-and-career-ready programs at no cost to them.

By donating as little as $100 you can help ensure a learner has a headset. With each $1,000 donation, you can help ensure a learner has a laptop. With each $8,000 donation, you can fund all costs associated with putting a learner through a course including equipment and technology, financial aid, cultural support, and career mentorship.
