Indigenous Student Events

Current Virtual Programming & Services 

The Indigenous Student Services team has created a number of sessions to continue to support our students and community remotely. Please continue to reach out to our team for support, and utilize the events via Zoom to engage with peers and staff. 

This virtual space, like our in-person space at Mohawk College, is meant to be a safe and respectful environment for our Indigenous students to gather and stay connected. 

Indigenous students - please check your Mohawk College email for details and Zoom links to join each session. If you have any questions, please contact amanda.aitchison2 [at]
