“Your Home Away From Home”

We have two offices (and a tipi) to serve you, located at the Education Centre Campus in C254 and at Commerce Court Campus, W100. These areas have been designed to ensure a comfortable learning environment for you. Your academic and general counselling needs can be met by booking a session with one of our Aboriginal counsellors. Cultural resources, peer tutoring and mentorship can be accessed to enhance your educational experience. Our goal is to offer cultural relevancy within post-secondary programming combined with integration and articulation of post-secondary programs to increase student opportunities for dual diplomas, certificates, and/or specialization and employment options for graduates.
