Memorial, McGill announce updates on Indigenous verification protocols

Memorial University has received a report that will inform the development of an Indigenous verification protocol. The work reviewed current Indigenous verification practices at Memorial and other universities in Canada and included consultations with self-identifying Indigenous faculty, staff, students, and alumni as well as the province’s Indigenous nations, communities, and organizations. Memorial will consider the report before making commitments or comments on specific recommendations and will invite further feedback from community members as it develops an Indigenous verification policy. McGill University announced that it has a new policy to validate claims of Indigenous citizenship and membership for those who are applying for designated employment opportunities. The policy has been implemented after nearly two years of consultation and study.
