Indigenous U of T

This website provides an overview to the Indigenous community, initiatives, services, and academic programs on all three U of T campuses. This space is a starting point for your journey to discover the vibrant Indigenous communities at U of T.  It will lead you to more in-depth resources that have been developed across the three campuses.

Statement of Purpose

U of T is dedicated in its efforts to be a place deserving of Indigenous community members.  As part of its commitment to achieve this, the University released its response Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Final Report, entitled Wecheehetowin: Answering the Call in January 2017.

Land Acknowledgement

I (we) wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

Knowledge Keepers & Faculty

Knowledge Keepers & Faculty

Elders embody a living memory of the past, a perspective on the present and a thoughtful guiding vision towards the future. They are a vital presence at the University of Toronto and we encourage students to engage and grow in connection with them. The faculty provide valuable teachings and support to students as well as to the wider community.

U of T’s Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission Residential School (1891-1981) Commemoration Project and Reunion events that took place in Williams Lake, BC in May 2013. Orange Shirt Day events commemorate the residential school experience, witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and encourage others to remain committed to the ongoing process of reconciliation.
