NATIONAL CENTRE FOR TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION

$35 MILLION

Fulfilling our national agreement with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, we have established the country's first research centre dedicated to studying the impact of the Canadian Residential School System.

RESEARCH CHAIR - ABORIGINAL LAW

$5 MILLION

We will ensure that Indigenous perspectives, traditions, and priorities are integrated into the foundations of our Faculty of Law by establishing a research chair in Aboriginal Law.

INDIGENOUS SUCCESS FUND

$17.5 MILLION

We will designate a dedicated fund to provide scholarships and bursaries, establish earlier connections with Indigenous youth through mentorship and outreach programs, and facilitate the transition from early years through to post-secondary education.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMMING

$7.5 MILLION

We will increase the capacity of programs with proven records of support and success, such as the Engineering Access Program and Aboriginal Business Education Partners.

“Education is the path towards economic freedom and wealth for Indigenous Peoples. At U of M we pledge to do our share to build a strong Aboriginal middle class. Our shared future demands no less.”
