About REEES:

The FNREEES (or "REEES" for short) stands for the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey, a new survey from the First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC).

Starting in fall 2013 the REEES will be carried out in 250 reserves and northern communities across Canada by FNIGC Regional Partners and trained regional field workers.

The FNIGC received a mandate to conduct the REEES from the Assembly of First Nations Chiefs in Assembly (per Resolution 19-2011) during their Annual General Meeting in Moncton, New Brunswick in June 2011.

Like FNIGC's long-running and successful Regional Health Survey (RHS), the REEES will collect quality information about First Nations communities using the First Nations principles of OCAPTM (Ownership, Control, Access and Possession) that will be used to support decision-making in First Nations communities, governments and organizations. In addition it will help influence government policy that can help improve the lives of First Nations, men, women and children.
