Indigenous Student Advising

From mainstream counselling to visiting with Elders, there are a number of ways First Nations, Métis and Inuit students (both undergraduate and graduate) can access support. This can be an informal chat or something more structured, depending on your comfort.

Whether you're having a bad day, have received unexpected news, or have been wrestling with something for a long time, you don't have to deal with it alone. Everyone experiences confusion and uncertainty sometimes.

The support provided through the Indigenous Student Centre can be a chance to talk things through, seek advice or simply share with someone who will respect the challenges you're experiencing.
