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


A news release from the First Nations Technical Institute has expressed 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 thereby perpetuates existing cycles of inequity among Indigenous students and their communities. FNTI President Suzanne Brant stated that while the institution had 862 applications this year, due to a lack of appropriate resources, it was only able to seat 299 students. The release contended that a similar situation is occurring across many of Canada’s Indigenous-led institutions. FNTI concluded by calling on the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario to provide additional resources to Indigenous students and institutions.
