Aboriginal Resource Centre

The Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC) strives to be a home-away-from-home for all First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and the community.  You can talk with the staff, meet other students, and join in activities and cultural events.

ARC offers:

  • Learning supports include financial support for tutoring, study space, and graduate student support that are designed to help you achieve academic success.
  • Financial supports help you to plan your financial strategy for university as well as apply for Aboriginal learner’s scholarships and bursaries.
  • Advising and Counselling supports offers support ranging from mainstream counselling to visiting with Elders. You can ask questions, talk things through, seek advice, or simply share with someone who will respect your experiences.
  • Programming throughout the fall and winter, ARC also hosts a range of activities and events to help you stay connected with the community including include Soup and Bannock Wednesdays, Learning Circles, and Drum Circles. In October of each year, Aboriginal Awareness Week acknowledges Aboriginal people and partnerships on campus, and creates opportunities for education and discussion.
  • A resource library.

The ARC is located in the Federal Building at 620 Gordon Street.
