Support for Indigenization at Laurier

The Office of Indigenous Initiatives at Wilfrid Laurier University is fully committed to the Indigenization of Laurier’s campuses as stated in the 2015-2020 Strategic Academic Plan. We regard de-colonization and Indigenization as critical elements in our mission to have "Laurier be an extraordinary and empowering experience for all First Nations, Inuit and Metis students,” and we will continue our work to Indigenize and respond to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

The Office of Indigenous Initiatives does not endorse the May 9 event featuring Frances Widdowson and we are strongly opposed to her views on Indigenization. We have a different understanding from that of this speaker.
