The Edge is here

Carolyn Belleau in Alkali Lake, BC
At the edge of a welcome new era, Carolyn Belleau honours her past by looking to the future. As one of 26 students entering UVic’s Indigenous Law program—a combination of Canadian Common Law and Indigenous Legal Orders—she intends to influence policy and provide legal expertise for her home community, Esk’etemc (Alkali Lake, BC), and beyond.

The UVic Edge is where dynamic learning and vital impact meet, in Canada's most extraordinary environment for discovery and innovation. Together, these elements nurture creative activity and ground us in the urgency of sustainability and healthy societies; shape our world view with Indigenous and international perspectives; and fuel our commitment to economic well-being, technological advances and social justice.
