For new students
All new students will be automatically enrolled in Mohawk’s Future Ready Orientation course on MyCanvas, Mohawk’s learning management system.
Designed to be completed at your own pace, this course will help student prepare for the semester ahead.
For returning students
This self-paced, choose-your-own-adventure course offers confidence building tools and strategies for success to help you thrive this semester.
Earn While You Learn
As you complete Future Ready Orientation or Re-Orientation, you will have the opportunity to earn badges and receive credit on your Co-Curricular Record! For each badge you register, you will be entered into a draw to win multiple prizes.
The Student Life team will draw 10 winners every week for the first month of classes. Prizes include Campus Store gift cards ranging from $50 to $500.
The time commitment for this course will vary per student and per topic, but generally, each badge will take 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
Virtual Learning Basket
Weaving together our knowledge and gifts
First Nation, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) students in all years of study are encouraged to enrol in Mohawk’s Virtual Learning Basket series on MyCanvas, Mohawk’s learning management system.
Created in collaboration with peers, alumni, Elders, Knowledge Keepers and educators, this resource will help FNMI students prepare to address physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational needs this semester and beyond.
