ON announces $34M investment in nursing, PSW programming at Indigenous institutes

The Government of Ontario has announced that it will be making a $34M investment in increasing nursing and personal support worker (PSW) program enrolment at six Indigenous institutes. Anishinabek Educational Institute, First Nations Technical Institute, Kenjgewin Teg, Oshki-Pimache-O-Win: The Wenjack Education Institute, Seven Generations Education Institute, and Six Nations Polytechnic will receive funding over four years to provide culturally responsive education and training pathways to learners. The funding will also support program development and expansion, student subsidies, and the enhancement of Indigenous knowledge and language. “This funding is critically important as we collectively work to recover from a global pandemic while continuing to create positive paths forward from our collective experience of inter-generational trauma and loss of language and culture,” said Six Nations President Rebecca Jamieson.
