The Student Services staff and support staff at the En’owkin Centre are dedicated to working with Indigenous students to meet the academic and cultural needs and aspirations of learners. We provide assistance with program/course information, degree planning and training plans for careers in the Arts.

Our goal as an Indigenous Adult Higher Learning Institute (IAHLA) is to provide learners with the highest quality of Indigenous led academic programming. We provide long-term and short-term individual academic counseling as well as a 'drop-in' resource centre to assist the learner with challenges that may come up during the academic year. Traditional Indigenous values and practices are supported and encouraged whenever applicable. CONTACT: Sara Tronson: Student Services Coordinator : EMAIL:
