Indigenous Affairs

Assiniboine is honoured to welcome students from many nations across the province and around the country.

Diversity contributes to the wealth of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit knowledge at Assiniboine, where we aim to ensure a sense of belonging while valuing and celebrating success.

We provide exceptional learning experiences through hands-on, affordable education in an environment that is warm and friendly with a strong sense of community. Assiniboine offers 40+ certificate and diploma programs to help prepare our graduates for successful careers.

We work hard to create a supportive environment that will make the educational experience fun and rewarding for aboriginal students. By way of special events, cultural activities and support, we assist aboriginal students in their academic and personal growth.

Our indigenous services include traditional and mainstream counselling support as well as providing resources and advice to faculty on indigenous issues. 

We also organize and support many activities throughout the year, including regular Elders' visits, and ongoing cultural and social activities. We can also refer you to external Elders, Aboriginal organizations, and community events and other resources. 

Feel welcome to use the Cultural Centre at our Victoria Avenue East Campus as an informal place to relax and socialize with other students.
