Indigenous Student

Ki’suk kyukyit (Greetings)!

Thank you for considering College of the Rockies.

College of the Rockies campuses are all located on the Ktunaxa traditional territory which is home to four Ktunaxa communities and the Shuswap Band. Our college serves First Nation, Me̓tis and Inuit students from all over Canada.  We offer opportunities for all students, staff and community members to learn about Canada’s history through an Indigenous perspective.  We believe that education, knowledge and understanding are key to reconciliation, and we offer a variety of events throughout the year to increase knowledge of Indigenous history, culture and world view.

All Indigenous students are strongly encouraged to self-identify on the College of the Rockies online application form upon Registration. Why? Self-identifying helps us to be able to stay in touch and inform you of different scholarship and bursaries available to Indigenous students as well as any events and supports that may interest you!

At College of the Rockies we use the term Indigenous to be inclusive of all people of Aboriginal ancestry; First-Nations, Métis and Inuit.
