The Indigenous Gathering Space, which opened its doors in 2010, is a rich, welcoming, multi-purpose environment for Indigenous students to connect while at the College.

The Gathering Space includes various amenities such as a computer lab, kitchen, lounge area and study space. The area is designed for rest and relaxation should students need or want to escape from the bustling College halls. This space promotes opportunities for students to connect with friends, old and new.

The space features cultural pieces from Indigenous artist Debra Sparrow, a member of Musqueam and we also have an Elder In Residence in the space Tue-Thu (10:00am to 2:00pm).

We have Indigenous Liaison Counsellors who respond to the needs of the students by encouraging their educational success and personal growth. The Indigenous Liaison Counsellors work out of the Counselling Services department (B Building, B111) and they offer free and confidential academic, career, and personal counselling.

Indigenous activities and events happen throughout the year within the Gathering Space and across campus. Events include:
