Indigenous Education

Aspiring Student

Let us help you turn your educational and career aspirations into reality.

Indigenous Liaison Advisor (Weeshengaawin)

The Indigenous Liaison Advisor is a point of first contact for students of First Nation, Métis and Inuit ancestry. We can help you with your questions and find your way around so you can start your education with confidence. We provide support and guidance via virtual advising meetings or over the phone for the following areas:

  • application process and admission requirement,
  • registration, including document submissions, and;
  • connection to other Indigenous Student Support team members.

Indigenous Liaison Advisors also build relationships by working cooperatively with Indigenous communities and band councils, consulting with faculty, liaising with Indigenous organizations, and connecting with employers. These relationships are developed to assist students in their career connections, funding sponsorship, urban adjustment, and familiarity with Red River College Polytechnic.

The Indigenous Recruitment and Advising team is thinking of you. Things may look a little different this year, but we’re still committed to working with you and keeping you informed about all things Red River College Polytechnic. We are available to support and assist aspiring Indigenous students and their communities with full-time and part-time programs available at RRC Polytech.

While we are unable to visit your schools and communities this fall, we look forward to reconnecting with you virtually.

Simply fill out the form below and someone will be in touch within three business days to answer your questions or to schedule an appointment.

Virtual Class Presentations and Campus Tours

We are also happy to set up a virtual presentation or virtual campus tour with your class or a group of interested prospective students. To request a Red River College Polytechnic Indigenous recruitment presentation or virtual tour, fill out the form below.

Wi-Fi/Internet-free Presentations

We recognize that not everyone has an excellent Internet connection and that virtual presentations can use up more data than some have available. Our team has developed packages that include pre-recorded presentations and resources with all the same information as a live virtual presentation. If you think your class or community would benefit from this resource, fill out the form below.

We look forward to connecting with you!
