Support and Services for Indigenous Students

At Confederation, we understand that transitioning to College is sometimes challenging, especially if you’re moving from a rural or remote community.  Indigenous Student Navigators are here to help you.

Whether you have questions or concerns, or you just need to talk, our approachable Indigenous Student Navigators are here for you.  We can help you find accommodations, band funding/scholarship applications, and provide career and academic advising.  We will connect you to services within the College and in the community, as well as connect you to Elders and traditional knowledge.

We provide culturally-appropriate events and programming that create a welcoming and engaging environment for Indigenous students.  

APIWIN (“A place to sit”)

Centrally located in the Shuniah Building, the APIWIN lounge is a quiet, safe learning space where students can gather to rest, study, and complete coursework.  Stop in any time and grab a coffee, eat your lunch, meet with a study group, or access laptops and workstations.
