Land Acknowledgment

RRC Polytech is committed to ensuring that First Nations, Métis and Inuit knowledge, cultures and traditions are embraced and reflected in the pursuit of its mission. 

An acknowledgement of these lands that we are on today, and of the RRC Polytech commitment to Indigenous peoples and communities, now form part of the foundational statements that define RRC Polytech.

RRC Polytech campuses are located on the lands of Anishinaabe, Ininiwak, Anishininew, Dakota and Dené, and the National Homeland of the Red River Métis.  

We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.

We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, and we dedicate ourselves to move
forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

RRC Polytech is committed to a renewed relationship and dialogue with Indigenous people based on the principles of mutual trust, respect and reciprocity.

We recognize that many Indigenous students who come to RRC Polytech may have
moved away from their family, friends and home communities and may need to seek
the care and guidance of Elders. We also understand that many students want to
choose for themselves how to achieve spiritual balance.

We are proud of our Elder-in-Residence program, which gives students the chance
to connect with the spiritual and cultural supports they feel they need to succeed.

Our Elders actively participate in special events, classroom activities and one-on-one
teachings and guidance sessions with students.

Indigenous Support Centre And Cultural Events

Our Indigenous Support Centres provide a home away from home where you can
smudge, participate in events, talk with support staff or spend time with friends.

Our facilities include a computer lab, kitchen, study area and lounge.
Throughout the year, we host sweat lodge ceremonies, guest speaker presentations,
feasts, arts and crafts workshops, drumming circles and student volunteer opportunities.
We conclude the year with our annual Pow Wow honouring Indigenous graduates.

“College has changed my life quite a bit. I was a completely different person before coming into this program and RRC Polytechnic. I just found the beauty in Indigenous culture that I was searching for my whole life. I never knew how beautiful our culture was and it made me more proud to be who I am.”

– Morgan Barbanchon, Graduate, Child and Youth Care
