The Vanier Indigenous Circle is made up of students, faculty, and staff who are all engaged in Indigenous issues and culture. One of the primary goals of the Vanier Indigenous Circle is to support all Indigenous students in terms of their personal wellbeing and academic goals while at the College. This can include anything from providing support during the transition from a small community to an urban setting, understanding college life, developing effective study skills, or providing a safe social network for students to get together, meet members of other Aboriginal communities and share their stories and experiences together.
Over the years, Vanier College has welcomed Indigenous students from distant Cree and Naskapi communities, as well as the neighbouring communities of Kahnawake and Kanesatake.
The Vanier Indigenous Circle also works closely with students to organize events, information tables, displays, hosting cultural events, film screenings, social gatherings, lunches and student led initiatives.
The content of the publications on this webpage are the sole responsibility of Vanier College & the authors.
Our publications and events are funded in part by the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport.
