FNU announces plans to build land-based learning centre for fourth campus


The First Nations University of Canada will be creating its fourth campus near the town of St Louis, Saskatchewan, thanks to new funding. FNU will receive over $2M from the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan to build a new campus that will include cabins, a permanent sweat lodge structure, an outdoor learning centre, and more. “For this land-based learning centre, we hope to expand the opportunities from our students to the community, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous,” said FNU President Jackie Ottman. “I think it will be a source of healing, a source of reconciliation. I’m really excited that we can engage and (begin) construction fairly quickly.”
