FNU meets with Prince Albert city council to discuss new, permanent campus


First Nations University is hoping to expand its presence in Prince Albert with a new permanent northern campus. The university met with Prince Albert city council on Monday with a goal of having a request for the purchase of five acres of land approved. The city council previously approved a similar request in 2021, but FNU was unsuccessful with the application for federal funding. The new proposed location is also contingent on federal funding, and the campus would include a two-storey building with childcare, spaces for elders and knowledge keepers, and a ceremonial space. It would also include a future plan to transition the campus to renewable energy.
