Spring is in full swing. The flowers and trees are blossoming in a rainbow of colours. It’s the season for change, growth, and renewal. The perfect moment for CityU in Canada to announce some exciting changes!
Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the two new Indigenous pages on the CityU in Canada website. Links and a short introduction are provided below, but these pages can be found anytime by visiting the Indigenous Resources tab on the CityU website.
Indigenous Engagement represents CityU’s commitment to reconciliation. Here you will find CityU’s intention statement, territory acknowledgements, and additional resources to learn more about Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. Click here to visit the new Indigenous Engagement page.
The Indigenous Student Resources page gathers the resources available to Indigenous students in one place. This page provides information on scholarships, employment opportunities, community events, and the support available to Indigenous students at CityU.

Indigenous Campus Advocate
The Student Resources page is also where you will find information about me, Jalissa Schmidt, CityU’s new Indigenous Campus Advocate. My role is to support Indigenous students in any way needed and to support cultural safety at CityU. If you have any questions or to discuss Indigenous initiatives, you can always reach me by email at: email@example.com.
I am honoured by new role, overjoyed with the release of the new Indigenous webpages, and inspired by the bright future ahead. This spring we have planted a seed of the future, keep watch to see it bloom!
