Creating Indigenous Student Pathways for a Sustainable Economy
Polytechnics across the country are committed to engaging and supporting Indigenous student success. To address unequal educational outcomes for Indigenous youth, polytechnics are improving access by developing early pathways and providing services and supports that include innovative learning models based on Indigenous community priorities.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic, the City of Saskatoon, Gabriel Dumont Institute, Radius Community Centre and Saskatoon Tribal Council are coordinating the kanātan nipīy (the water is clean/clean water) program. Saskatchewan Polytechnic provides essential skills training in water treatment and distribution to Indigenous people, including youth between the ages of 18 and 29. The program will strengthen and improve the quality of water for all people requiring clean, potable water and increase access to employment opportunities in water treatment and distribution facilities, such as with the City of Saskatoon’s Water and Waste Operations.
