Indigenous Advisory Circle

WAEC banner

The Indigenous Advisory Circle is a visionary and advisory body, working together to bring the issues and experiences, expertise and perspectives of Indigenous peoples to St. Paul's and the University of Waterloo. Members will consult regularly with representatives of Indigenous organizations throughout the country, and internationally, and with individuals who are working at the community level on Indigenous issues, and make recommendations to the University to achieve its objective of Indigenous inclusion.

Members

The Indigenous Advisory Circle is composed of at least five Indigenous people, including two from First Nations communities, one each from Inuit and Métis communities, and one representative of non-Canadian Indigenous peoples.
