In 2008 the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board approved the creation of a Native Education Advisory Committee (IEAC). An official committee of the KPDSB, IEAC meets three times per year. Comprised of representatives from Indigenous agencies across the region IEAC meets to discuss Indigenous student achievement and issues relevant to Indigenous families and communities. Data accumulated as a result of the voluntary self-ID policy is also shared with IEAC. Members of the KPDSB Senior Administration team including its Aboriginal Advisor also attend IEAC meetings.
