Internal Funding for Guest Speakers, Workshops, and Special Projects:

The Vanier Indigenous Circle supports teachers’ efforts to indigenize their course content through sponsorship of Indigenous related speakers and events that bring in personal voices and/or traditional knowledge to the college community through a special funding envelope. The Vanier Indigenous Circle’s allocations of funds are dependent on yearly allotments provided by the Quebec Ministry of Education (MEES); the number of requests; prioritization of new programs/teachers accessing funds; and relevance to the indigenization of the academy.

The funding, along with a protocol gift, will be provided by the Vanier Indigenous Circle, to invited speakers, up to the specified allotments provided for the year in question.
