McGill Arts building with treesHow did Rez Project start?

Rez Project was the result of an idea put forward by a group of Floor Fellows with the goal of creating spaces for discussion around issues affecting their communities.

For over 15 years, students living in McGill Residences have participated in Rez Project workshops, where they are equipped with tools to create more supportive and inclusive communities.

What happens at Rez Project?

Rez project consists of two workshops that take place early in the Fall and Winter semesters. These workshops introduce students to issues related to equity, difference, and power, particularly in the context of gender, sexuality, consent, race, and Indigenous histories and realities.

Workshops are facilitated by a small team of vigorously trained student Facilitators and are supported by the Office of the Dean of Students.

We would like to acknowledge that McGill University is located on land, which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
