Indigenous Self–Identification

Main Content

Indigenous students at George Brown College are invited to self-identify so they can access our services.

Whether you’re a member of a First Nations, Métis or Inuit community (status or non-status), you’re welcome to join us.

Self-identification is voluntary, easy and confidential. To self-identify, fill out our form and a member of our team will follow up with you directly.

What are the benefits of joining our Indigenous community?

  • information on student events and community updates
  • access to job postings and employment opportunities
  • assistance with applying for scholarships, bursaries and awards
  • cultural workshops and teachings
  • connection with a Knowledge & Wisdom Keeper
  • smudging

These resources are limited and are meant to support Indigenous students. If you aren't sure if you are Indigenous, come talk with us and we would be happy to help point you to resources that could help you.
