The mandate of the Northern College Indigenous Council on Education is to act as the formal expression of the ownership of the College by the First Nations and those who share that ancestry living in the region that the College serves. The Council works with the Board of Governors of Northern College through both the President and the Indigenous Representatives on the Board of Governors to develop the policies governing Indigenous programs and services offered through Northern College.

The Council is recruiting members who strongly believe in the importance of education and who want to assume a leadership role in Northern College to ensure that the educational needs of the Indigenous community are identified, addressed, evaluated, assessed and achieved.
