Office of Indigenous Initiatives

On January 13th, 2017, the University of Toronto’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Steering Committee released their final report, calling on the University to take action in six key areas: Indigenous spaces, Indigenous faculty and staff, Indigenous curriculum, Indigenous research ethics and community relationships, Indigenous students and co-curricular education, Institutional leadership and implementation.

The Office of Indigenous Initiatives was designed in response to this report and is mandated to support the U of T community in addressing the Calls to Action. If you’d wish to view the full report by U of T’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission Steering Committee you can find it HERE.

The Office of Indigenous Initiatives is committed toward developing effective and culturally appropriate workshops, courses, multi-media tools, and other resources that promote understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities at the University. 

Indigenous Cultural Competency Training is one of the various programs offered through the Office of Indigenous Initiatives.
