Working with the Quebec-based First Nations Education Council, Whiteduck was instrumental in getting First Nations Assembly national chief Phil Fontaine to sign a petition which, in part, "urge(s) the government of Canada" to not only make the post-secondary student support program permanent but to "fully shoulder its responsibility in adequately funding the right to postsecondary education for First Nations.
recall the impact that it had for them, and the programs, the inclusion of Elders and whatnot, so there was always that push to have a post-secondary institution controlled by First Nations, with solid content, quality programs, not watered-down, allowing students to move on wherever they need to move on, but giving them a First Nations perspective," said Gilbert Whiteduck, education advisor for the First Nations Education Council, an association representing Quebec's First Nations that is working to establish the new college.
He was a founding member in 1985 and then continuous chair of the First Nations Education Council for School District #73, and initiated the signing of the first five-year Education Improvement Agreement, and followed it up with an Enhancement Agreement.
