Abstract

In Canada, Aboriginal people have a lower high school completion rate than the completion rate for non-aboriginals. This can lead to unemployment, poverty and unrealized potential in Canada's fastest-growing demographic. As a result, many Aboriginal and Indigenous people in our global community have economic insecurity which can impact their health, welfare, and future.

As a result, SCCyber has been focusing on creating solid teaching strategies that will focus on educating students in how to be sustainable, how to create food security for themselves, their families, and communities, and how to take control of their futures as sovereign beings, capable of determining the course of their own lives. While SCCyber has been providing quality education to Aboriginal students since early 2000, it has always been on top of the wave of progressive teaching practices for their unique clientele. Adding this project to course offerings, and assisting communities to move towards self-sufficiency, will create a more sustainable future for Urban Aboriginal peoples.
