ACCC report highlights colleges' success with Aboriginal students

November 30, 2010

Yesterday the Association of Canadian Community Colleges released a report showing how colleges, institutes, and polytechnics are offering programs and services that support and nurture Aboriginal students through to graduation. According to the report, 90% of colleges have learning centres and tutoring support services, 80% provide help finding housing, and 71% offer specific Aboriginal diplomas and certificates. Since 2005, when ACCC published a similar report, services and programs for Aboriginal students have expanded rapidly. Enrolment has more than doubled at 2 Aboriginal institutes in Saskatchewan and BC and increased substantially at other institutions. ACCC News Release | Read the report
