Centre for Indigenous Studies

Located on the St.George Campus at 563 Spadina Avenue, the Centre for Indigenous Studies (CIS) is a hub of Indigenous activity where students can study and explore Indigenous research at the University of Toronto. CIS features creative and exciting research regarding the teachings, methodologies and epistemology of Indigenous peoples in Canada and throughout the world. 

The Centre for Indigenous Studies acts as the home for the Indigenous Studies Program at U of T. Indigenous Studies is an OPEN ENROLMENT undergraduate program offered by the Faculty of Arts and Science that accepts students with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous background who wish to acquire a knowledge of Indigenous peoples' languages, knowledges, cultures, histories, politics, arts, intellectual traditions, and research methodologies.

In addition to the Indigenous Studies Program, CIS’s Indigenous language initiative (Ciimaan/Kahuwe’yá/Qajaq) supports the study and everyday use of Indigenous languages through the University of Toronto. Ciimaan/Kahuwe’yá/Qajaq provides the community with space, programming, and support in order to facilitate the study and everyday use of Indigenous languages; such as Anishinaabemowin, Haudenosaunee Language (Oneida), and Inuktitut languages. For more information about the Ciimaan/Kahuwe’yá/Qajaq language initiative and workshops offered, please Click Here.

Lastly, the Centre for Indigenous Studies promotes the recruitment and retention of Indigenous graduate and undergraduate scholars. Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement (SAGE) is a graduate led group operating out of the Centre for Indigenous Studies that is specifically designed to help improve the recruitment and retention of First Nations (status/non-status), Inuit, Métis and other Indigenous students at the University of Toronto.
