Strengthening Connections

Strengthening Connections is a team of recruiters and advisors who visit both urban and rural Indigenous communities throughout BC. The team is comprised of representatives from public and Indigenous post-secondary institutions, and is joined by federal and provincial government departments and crown corporations. Strengthening Connections’ mission is to increase the participation of Indigenous learners in post-secondary education. The team accomplishes this by bringing critical academic and financial assistance information to Indigenous learners, so that they can make well-informed choices and successful transitions to post-secondary. Strengthening Connections has been doing this important work since 2005-2006.
