Self-declare Your Indigenous Ancestry
We encourage you to declare your Indigenous ancestry. No proof of ancestry is required. You can declare when you apply or after you become an NIC student. By self-declaring you can gain access to information on awards, scholarships and bursaries, NIC programs, supports and services, and access to Priority Admission for some programs.
Reconciliation is something all Canadians have a role in — both Indigenous and non-
Indigenous. Indigenization of the academy, from a local Indigenous perspective, is a big part of reconciliation; the dialogues that occur between our students will lay the foundation for transforming relationships.
