Indigenous Services

From academic help and advice to personal support, everything's in place to help Indigenous students succeed at CapU.

Direct services and support for students of First Nations, Inuit and Métis ancestry include:

  • help with choosing courses and registering at CapU
  • contact with First Nations Band education officers and CapU instructors
  • advising on special programs, and
  • advice and help with personal, health and school-based issues.

This assistance is available to students at our North Vancouver and kálax-ay | Sunshine Coast campuses.
