New Learning Partnership
Supported by a commitment of $22.5 million over five years by the Mastercard Foundation and managed by the Rideau Hall Foundation, this learning partnership creates opportunities for Indigenous learners to be full partners in their education by providing educational experiences and support that are relevant to them. Students at Vancouver Island University (VIU) and Yukon College began to receive the full support of this partnership in September 2017.
VIU and Yukon College have been integral in designing and developing initiatives supported by this partnership, and were selected based on their experience and knowledge in addressing access to post-secondary education for Indigenous learners. This new learning partnership aims to expand the reach of existing initiatives at these institutions as they work with communities to remove barriers to education for Indigenous youth.
