At College of the Rockies we value the relationships we have built with our Indigenous partners, the Ktunaxa Nation, Shuswap Band and Kootenay Region Metis Assocation. We are proud to provide excellent programs and services and are committed to making Aboriginal education a priority.
Our Indigenous Education team consists of Resident Elders, Student Mentors, Student Navigator, Indigenous Education Coordinator/Advisor, and Director of Indigenous Strategy and Reconciliation. We work closely with representatives from the Ktunaxa Nation Council Education and Employment Sector. Our team is here to help make your College experience a success.
We primarily serve First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and community members seeking to further their education or training. We also offer opportunities and activities for all students, staff, faculty and external community members throughout the year. We seek to assist all who are interested in growing in their Indigenous knowledge.
Come and connect with our Student Navigator and Student Mentors who would love to share their experiences at the College and help you get settled in to college life.
All new and returning members of our community are encouraged to like our Facebook page, where all updates about past, current, and future events are posted. If you have any events or news to share, let us know and we will post it to our page for you!
The Aboriginal Gathering Place , was built and developed with the assistance of Ktunaxa partners and community members and students and staff at College of the Rockies. We recognize this space as a sacred space that reflects the character, community and traditions of Indigenous cultures.
As an Indigenous student there are many opportunities to offset the costs of tuition, books and living expenses. A broad range of scholarships and bursaries, from many different institutions across Canada simply require an application. You will find more detailed information under Financial Aid.
