Hello! N'it! Wachiya! Ahnee! Tansi! She:kon! Kwe!

TMU Indigenous Student Services  provides a culturally supportive environment to promote academic excellence and serves as a place to balance academic learning with traditional teachings and culture.

Our role is to provide specialized services for First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples on campus and to develop a mutually productive relationship between TMU and the Indigenous community.

Our new name, Gdoo-maawnjidimi Mompii “We Gather Here” symbolizes how the office brings together Indigenous community members to access support services, programs and the Indigenous Student Centre under one roof. 

Toronto Metropolitan University strives to develop positive relationships with the Indigenous community through initiatives such as the Indigenous Education Council (IEC), Indigenous Student Services, and Indigenous Initiatives unit within the Office of the Vice-President, Equity and Community Inclusion (OVPECI).

Toronto Metropolitan University is located in Toronto. Toronto is in the “Dish With One Spoon Territory”

The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and Peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
