Anishinabek Educational Institute


The Anishinabek Educational Institute lives by its mandate to provide quality education and training programs for First Nation Anishinabek communities.

The Anishinabek Educational Institute (AEI) is committed to helping its students achieve their highest potential. Established in 1994, AEI provides programming that is responsive to First Nations’ needs providing a comfortable, supportive learning environment that promotes the traditional values of sharing, caring and respect.

AEI offers full-time, community-based, programming at two campuses. Programs are designed with students in mind and are delivered in a way that reduces the high stress levels which can develop when students are away from their family, community and workplace responsibilities. In addition, AEI’s programs are delivered in such a way that students are able to retain their jobs while being trained.

AEI provides community-based programming that positions students for success in an ever-changing world. AEI’s doors are open to everyone, and there is no application fee.

My Choice. My Path.

“When I’m in the classroom, they feel more relaxed because there is someone from the community who they feel really at home with. As a grandmother, I bring my experience and that atmosphere to classroom time.”
