The mission of Treaty Six Education Council (TSEC) is to provide second level support services to member Nations that enhances the education systems at the First Nation level.


The vision of Treaty Six Education Council is to create cultural pride through academic achievement and success which instills lifelong learning.


The following values guide the way in which we make decisions and take action:

  • We honour Indigenous knowledge and experience
