We strive towards transforming spaces, places and hearts; weaving together two distinct cultures; and improving relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples so RRC Polytech can become the post-secondary institute of choice in Manitoba for Indigenous learners.

Red River College Polytechnic has actively taken on the responsibility to embed the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action. As a signatory to the Manitoba Collaborative Indigenous Education Blueprint, RRC Polytech has made a public pledge to advance Indigenous education in the province. RRC Polytech is committed to advancing Indigenous achievement by enhancing the environment supporting Indigenous student success and by strengthening partnerships with Indigenous communities.

At the heart of reconciliation is the need to create strong relationships built on trust, respect and inclusion. Reflective of these values, the Manager of Truth and Reconciliation and Community Engagement has focused on building strong relationships between non-Indigenous and Indigenous students, staff, faculty and community.

As our Truth and Reconciliation strategy continues to evolve, we are focused on training and education, curriculum development, and college community engagement.

Truth and Reconciliation belongs to and is the responsibility of every person in Canada. By working together, will we be able to move forward in a way that’s mutually beneficial to all peoples.
