Kenjgewin Teg opens Anishinabek Skills and Innovation Research Centre

September 27, 2019

Kenjgewin Teg Educational Institute has announced the opening of its new Anishinabek Skills and Innovation Research Centre, a specialized training facility that aims to address the lacking education resources on Manitoulin and to contribute to trade sector growth. The new centre includes spaces equipped to host electrical, plumbing, welding, and carpentry classes, as well as rooms that facilitate technological and theory-based learning. While Kenjgewin Teg welcomes both Indigenous and non-Indigenous adult learners, President Stephanie Roy notes that the opening of the centre continues the institution’s goal of “no more research about us, without us. We will play an integral role in research in the North.” Manitoulin Expositor (ON)
