Indigenous Education Open House

May 18, 2018

Red River College Indigenous Education has recently implemented a new strategic vision that focuses on the long-term success of our Indigenous students through the redevelopment of our Indigenous Student Support Services, as well as changes to our academic programming.

We have recently undergone some exciting new developments and are pleased to announce the launch of five new academic programs coming this fall 2018.

To help spread the word on these exciting new post-secondary educational opportunities for students we would like to extend an invitation to you to join us at our upcoming Indigenous Education Open House on Thursday, May 31st, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Our Open House will take place at the Notre Dame Campus in our Indigenous Student Support Centre, Building F, 2nd Floor, Room F209, where aspiring students and guests will have the opportunity to learn about the five new programs in detail, gather information about Indigenous support services, as well as the opportunity to apply the same day.

The new programs are:

  • ACCESS Pathway to Health Programs (10-month transitional program)
  • ACCESS Pathway to Engineering Technology Programs (10-month transitional program)
  • Culinary Skills Certificate (10 months)
  • Indigenous Social Enterprise (2 years)
  • Indigenous Language Certificate Program (10 months)

In addition to sharing information about our new and current programming, we will also be promoting a new Indspire Brighter Futures bursary for those who are ready to apply to one of our five new programs.

To qualify for this bursary, aspiring students will require proof of Indigenous ancestry, demonstrated financial need, a Social Insurance Number, official high school transcripts and complete the online Indspire Brighter Futures application.

Aspiring students, who meet all the criteria in addition to academic admission requirements to one of our new programs, will receive a bursary from Indspire that will cover the cost of the application fee, tuition and books. More information will be provided at the event and support staff will be on site to guide students through the application process.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Aspiring Student Manager, Frank Parkes, at 204.632.2534 or
