Indigenous people have a long tradition of caring for the ill and helping people stay well, yet the shortage of health care professionals is particularly evident in rural and indigenous communities across Canada.

The Faculty of Health Sciences' commitment to Indigenous students remains a central feature of its programming. Support services are offered to Indigenous students in all programs in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Our Indigenous Learning Facilitator, Sianna Cherweniuk-Hummel, can help you access:

  • Elders
  • Advisors
  • Tutors
  • Mentors
  • Scholarship and funding opportunities
  • Personal support and counselling
