The Indigenous Education Program is run by Janelle Kasperski, one of our Equity Education Advisors who specializes in issues of Indigenous Education.

As part of the program, we offer:

  • Training workshops on Indigenous Perspectives for clubs and faculty associations.
  • Advice on the development of Indigenous-focused programs and events.
  • A connection to Indigenous organizations/groups at McGill and in Montréal.
  • The opportunity to tutor and mentor youth from the Kahnawa:ke Survival School.

For more information or to participate in the Indigenous Education Program, please contact janelle.kasperski [at] (Janelle Kasperski).



McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehà:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.

For more information about traditional territory and tips on how to make a land acknowledgement, visit our Land Acknowledgement webpage.
