UOttawa, U of T take steps to ensure Indigenous representation, inclusion

Faculties at the University of Ottawa and the University of Toronto have recently taken steps to ensure Indigenous representation and inclusion. UOttawa’s Faculty of Social Sciences’ School of Social Work has passed a resolution that will see traditional Indigenous knowledges integrated into its programs, curricula, and teaching approach. The initiative strives to decolonize UOttawa’s programs and to value Indigenous knowledges equally with Western ones. U of T’s Public Health & Preventive Medicine Program is beginning the process of Indigenizing its curriculum by asking residents to incorporate relevant Indigenous knowledge in lectures on standard public health content. The move aims to ensure that when residents graduate they have the knowledge to provide services in a culturally safe manner.
