The Office of Indigenous Initiatives is in the process of updating which initiatives we are going to be working on post-pandemic and with our newly formed team.

Our community events provide the opportunity for people to meet and develop relationships with Indigenous people through social events and by participating in workshops together.

Indigenous Education Week

Laurier holds an annual weeklong series of events that highlight the contributions of Indigenous knowledge to education on both our Waterloo and Brantford campuses. Indigenous Education Week is an opportunity for the Laurier community not only to learn about contemporary Indigenous issues such as language recovery, but also to experience Indigenous art, music and film.

Indigenous Camps and Youth Programs

Laurier recognizes how critical university outreach is to Indigenous youth to close the gap in postsecondary education for Indigenous people. As part of our outreach initiatives, Laurier hosts Indigenous camps to engage Indigenous youth in university life, helping them see themselves studying and succeeding in higher education.
