UBC provides $4M to multiple Indigenous-focused initiatives

The University of British Columbia will be providing $4M in funding to multiple Indigenous-focused initiatives through the Indigenous Strategic Initiatives Fund. The 30 projects receiving funding have been developed by UBC and UBC Okanagan faculty, staff, and post-doctoral students/fellows, and many include community collaboration. The projects cover topics such as the establishment of a self-sustainable micro-forest using Indigenous knowledge, development of new training platforms to support Musqueam (xwməθkwəy̓əm) Indian Band employment opportunities, and improvement of health outcomes for Indigenous Peoples.
