A wide diversity of organizations at UM that already have experience in Indigenizing curricula are also making critical contributions.

  • The Community Engaged Learning offers programs to help students develop skills and build relationships with communities. Trainees will have opportunities to engage in these programs and receive cultural and anti-racism training through them, contributing resources and time. 
  • The Engineering Access Program is a leader in providing opportunities for Indigenous trainees to access, prepare for and succeed in the Price Faculty of Engineering. They will play a critical role when it comes to mentorship, coordination and outreach. The Riddell Faculty of Environment co-op program already provides students with research and employment training and cooperative work placements but will use this program as an opportunity to diversify their programming to focus on Indigenous trainees. 
  • The International Centre through its networks and resources will play a critical role in supporting international students in this program. 
  • The UM Indigenous Concerns for the Environment Student Group provides Indigenous and non-Indigenous students with opportunities to connect with culture and tradition, particularly through hands-on learning and will continue to play this mentorship and networking role here. 
  • The Wawatay Science Program helps Indigenous science students navigate their university studies and succeed through mentorship and culturally appropriate teaching, which they will continue to do here. 
University College of the North (UCN)

UCN already provides northern communities with teaching, learning, and research opportunities close to home while being inclusive and respectful of diverse Indigenous and northern values. Indeed, 70-80% of their student body is Indigenous and from the North. UCN researchers will help to facilitate internships, work experiences, and research for graduate students wanting to work and study in Manitoba’s North. UCN’s role reflects its northern and explicit Indigenous-centered mandate, leadership by its Elder Council and excellence when engaging Indigenous youth, in many cases as they pursue postsecondary education while remaining in their home communities.  

Lakehead University

Lakehead University will further enrich the project through its partnerships with industry, government, organizations, and Indigenous communities in Northern Ontario. Six researchers will be involved as co-applicants and collaborators, and they will also contribute support for student scholarships and travel associated with this project while offering advice and guidance around Indigenizing curricula. 

Other University Partners

Partnerships with other universities have already begun to emerge through this project. These researchers will play a role in environmental monitoring and supporting communities as they adapt to climate change and promote our program within their institutions.


We have the support of several First Nations communities and organizations.
