About the Post-Secondary Funding Program… 

Freehorse Family Wellness Society (FFWS) administers the Post Secondary Funding Program on behalf of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC). This program is run according to the Post-Secondary Student Support Program and UCEPP Policies and the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Development (DIAND). The Post Secondary Funding Program assists students who have regained their status as a result of Bill C-31 from various Alberta First Nations, and students who are residents of Alberta with Northwest Territories or Inuit Treaty Status.FFWS is committed to providing quality administration of the Post Secondary Funding Program. For us, this means continuous improvement of our service while working within the guidelines of both policy and budgetary restrictions. Within these parameters, the staff of the Post Secondary Funding Program strives to administer a program that is fair, equitable, and balanced, while considering individual student needs.

The delivery of the program is based on policies and procedures that were originally set forth by INAC when the program was first contracted to FFWS. However, we do have to, from time to time, modify procedures to accommodate the changes in educational trends.
