    Aboriginal Education and Training Strategy
    The Aboriginal Education and Training Strategy is an initiative to increase access for aboriginal students in Ontario’s universities and colleges. Through support received under the Strategy, aboriginal academic programs and content across the curriculum were designed, developed and implemented, to increase enrolment, retention and completion rates of Aboriginal students studying in the mainstream. As part of this initiative, a culturally sensitive environment for Aboriginal students was enhanced at Lakehead. Culturally relevant academic and support services programs have increased in the past six years as has the total number of Aboriginal faculty and staff working within the institution.
