Cher Trudeau,

Join us at the 11th annual Indigenous Student Showcase – a platform for undergraduate and graduate Indigenous students at Toronto Metropolitan University to define their success and present their accomplishments to the broader community. 

Indigenous students at TMU are involved in various scholarly, research and creative activities. Through this event, we will highlight and celebrate their achievements, creativity and innovation.

Student presenters will also be recognized with the Defining Your Success – Award for Creative Excellence and a $500 honorarium. Other scholarship and award recipients will be recognized at the event as well.

Following the student presentations, the community can look forward to hearing updates from the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives, OVPECI, Aboriginal Student Services and the Aboriginal Education Council on our work over the past year.
