Indigenous Affairs

Cape Breton University is proud to be the Atlantic Canadian leader in Indigenous post-secondary education, and we’re excited to help make bright futures happen for our Indigenous students and for their communities.

Indigenous culture, heritage and knowledge are integrated into 皇冠体彩’s Indigenous education options, offering all 皇冠体彩 students the opportunity to not just learn about these cultures, but to learn from them and to apply the teachings throughout their careers.

Through its unique partnerships with Indigenous communities on Cape Breton Island (Unama’ki) and elsewhere in Canada, Cape Breton University has been able to establish a number of impactful innovations in education for Indigenous peoples and Indigenous knowledge sharing.  These include:
