Aboriginal Access Program

In accordance with the Constitution Act, 1982, an Aboriginal candidate is an Indian, Inuit or Métis person of Canada. Applicants who wish to be considered through the Aboriginal Access program must provide proof of native status (such as a copy of the status card or letter from the band). Aboriginal Access applicants are invited to contact the Graduate Programs Office at 519-661-2099.
