USask to implement Indigenous verification policy

The University of Saskatchewan has announced that it will be implementing a new Indigenous verification policy this fall to ensure that funding and programming goes to Indigenous people. Faculty, staff, and students who access Indigenous funding and programming will be required to provide documentation showing that they are a citizen or member of an Indigenous community. USask interim vice-provost of Indigenous engagement Angela Jaime said that the policy focuses on “creating a space that is meant for Indigenous people [and] resources that are meant for Indigenous people to make sure that we don’t have fraudulent claims going forward. We’re working to do an even better job going forward in creating that space of funding resources positions [and] senior leadership positions.” CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
