The purpose of the Individual Learning Center is to re-engage students in an educational setting in order to provide an opportunity for each student to achieve their high school graduation. It is the philosophy of the Staff that every student who enters our facility has the ability to complete their academic graduation requirements. At the ILC, we recognize that it takes a lot of courage for a student to re-engage in their educational journey and inquire about the possibility of completing high school.

Aurora Virtual School

Local Organization, Program

Provided By: Third Party Website

Aurora Virtual School is Yukon’s Distributed Learning (DL) school. As such, we are the newest public school program in the Territory.  At AVS, our programs meet all territorially mandated learning outcomes and are directed by highly trained, Yukon-certified, teachers.  

At AVS, we provide what has commonly been known as “distributed learning.” A more apt and current descriptor would be eLearning.  This is when a student is primarily at a distance from the teacher, and can be accomplished anywhere there is access to an Internet connection.  This means a student could be working at home, in another school, a public library or abroad.

The Canadian Forces Aboriginal Entry Program (CFAEP) is a special three-week course for Indigenous peoples who are considering a career in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). During the program, you will get hands-on experience with military training, careers and lifestyle.

You do not have to join the CAF after completing the three weeks. At the end of the program, you will receive $1,200 and a certificate of military achievement.

The course takes place at the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec and at Canadian Forces Base Halifax, Nova Scotia. We provide transportation to and from the training centre, living accommodations, food, clothing and all equipment for the course. At the end of the course, if you choose to join the CAF, you will return home until the next available Basic Training course starts.

What you will learn

You will learn about the long and proud history of Indigenous peoples in Canada’s military and take part in exercises similar to Basic Training, such as:

  • morning inspections
  • daily physical fitness and sports
  • navigation with compass and maps
  • basic weapons training
  • military drill

Indigenous Summer Programs


Provided By: Canadian Armed Forces

The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) offers five summer training programs that combine military lifestyle with cultural awareness: Bold Eagle, Raven, Black Bear, Carcajou (Wolverine) and Grey Wolf. Participants will be enrolled into the CAF for the duration of the programs.

Bold Eagle is an Army program open to Indigenous people living in Western Canada or Northwestern Ontario. Participants train in Wainwright, Alberta.

Raven is a Navy program open to Indigenous people from across Canada. Participants train in Esquimalt, British Columbia.

Black Bear is an Army program open to Indigenous people from across Canada. Participants train in Oromocto, New Brunswick.

Carcajou is an Army program open to Indigenous people living across Canada and is delivered in French. Participants train in Valcartier, Québec.

Grey Wolf is an Army program open to Indigenous people living across Ontario. Participants train in Meaford, Ontario.

The CAF arranges travel to and from the program and provides living accommodations, food, clothing and equipment for the participants. While in the programs, participants are CAF members and are paid as a Private while they are attending the programs. Upon completion, the participants can choose to release from the CAF or to remain enrolled and transfer into the Reserve Force, the Regular force or into a Canadian Rangers Patrol Group (CRPG).

These six-week long programs give participants a taste of military training with the option to continue on with a career in the CAF. The training received is taught by military instructors and participants come away with an Army Reserve Basic Military Qualification course.

Subjects include:

  • general military knowledge;
  • weapons handling;
  • navigation;
  • First Aid;
  • drill; and
  • survival skills.

All five summer training programs begin with a culture camp. The camp is designed to ease the transition from civilian to the military lifestyle, and focuses on common spiritual traditions and teachings. All culture camps are led by Elders of different Indigenous groups.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible to participate in the programs, candidates must:

  • have completed at least Grade 10 or Secondaire IV in Quebec;
  • be at least 16 years old; and
  • be an Indigenous person (First Nation, status or non-status, Metis, or Inuit).

To apply to a summer training program, we encourage you to get in touch with our program coordinators as well as the staff at the Canadian Forces Recruiting Center in your area for information. They will be able to answer questions and help walk you through the online application process. Our program coordinators can also provide paper application forms, if needed.

The application is due by the 30th of April each year so that all the arrangements can be made in time for the beginning of the programs in July.
