First People's House



First People's House

McGill's First Peoples' House provides a sense of community and a voice to Indigenous students who have left their home communities in order to pursue higher education. It is our hope that the education that Indigenous students receive here at McGill will benefit their communities. We welcome all Indigenous students including Métis, the Inuit, & First Nations (both "status" & "non-status"), Maori and Aborigines.
