FNTI calls on Canada, ON to provide additional resources for Indigenous-led postsecondary institutions 

The First Nations Technical Institute recently issued a statement expressing concern regarding the lack of resources and facilities available for Indigenous postsecondary students. FNTI highlighted that many Indigenous-led institutions do not have adequate resources, which perpetuates the existing cycles of inequity among Indigenous students and their communities. FNTI President Suzanne Brant stated that while the institution had 862 applications this year, the lack of appropriate resources meant that it was only able to seat 299 students. The release contended that a similar situation is occurring at many of Canada’s Indigenous-led institutions and called on the federal and provincial government to provide additional resources to Indigenous students and institutions.
