Walk with us

We offer excellent employment opportunities in teaching and other important fields and we are looking for people who want to advance the Cree Nation.

We believe that education is a key driver of success. A foundation in education will enhance the lives of our children, our communities, and our nation as a whole. The Cree School Board provides pre-primary through secondary and adult education services in Cree, French and English in nine communities.
