The Urban Indigenous Education Centre (formally known as the Aboriginal Education Centre) is pleased to offer a variety of services with the goal of closing the opportunity gap for Aboriginal students.

Staff at the Aboriginal Education Centre include a Program Coordinator, an itinerant Student Success Teacher, a Child and Youth Counsellor, a Social Worker, an Instructional Leader and Community Liaison Workers who collectively offer a wide range of services not limited to the following:

  • Family advocacy and connection to community resources
  • One-on-one and group itinerant support
  • Professional development and support for school staff
  • Referrals and student networking within the Aboriginal community
