This program will also foster cultural awareness through a set curriculum that includes coursework in Canadian Aboriginal culture and college success. Students entering this program will be provided with additional supports from FNMI Services and will work with Academic Advising in completing Academic Success Plans.

This is a 24-credit, 8-month (two semesters) college program serving FNMI students who want to enhance their opportunities for success, and sample from a variety of program offerings.
