The Government of Canada, through Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada is currently accepting proposals for new Innovation activities within the New Paths for Education program that allows First Nations to try new academic programs, strategies, and technologies, and develop evidence-based solutions that can be shared with other schools. It is intended to assist band-operated schools to:

- assess and measure the impact of the pilot program on New Paths for Education objectives and outcomes
- share the story of successfully piloted innovations nationwide
- Land-based education: Land-based education provides First Nations students with the opportunity to learn while connecting with the land. It challenges students to discover new personal limits and build leadership skills and confidence by using traditional knowledge and teachings.
- Physical activity and sport: The Aboriginal Long-Term Participant Development Pathway is a roadmap for developing quality physical activity and sport programming. It:
- represents a shift in the way that physical activity and sport is led and delivered for Indigenous peoples
