New Indigenous Studies Pathway

In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Lambton College is excited to share a new program that will address the university attainment gap for Indigenous students as well as provide an opportunity for non-Indigenous students to be better equipped to understand varied perspectives as daily life and mainstream employment intersect with Indigenous people. Students have the option to enrol into Liberal Studies - Indigenous Studies to focus on an Indigenous stream.

All students at Lambton College will have access to a variety of Indigenous-focused electives. Having access to foundational knowledge on Indigenous history and pedagogies is critical to advancing Truth and Reconciliation.
