As part of its Aboriginal Postsecondary Education and Training Action Plan, Ryerson University established a University Advisory Council on Aboriginal Issues and Education (Aboriginal Education Council) in 2010. Aboriginal people include First Nations (status and non-status); Métis, and Inuit.
The Institute is a First Nation-led research centre based in the Faculty of Arts at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. Privileging First Nation philosophy and rooted in community networks, Yellowhead is specifically focused on policies related to land and governance. The Institute offers critical and accessible resources for communities in their pursuit of self-determination. It also aims to foster education and dialogue on First Nation governance across fields of study, between the University and the wider community, and among Indigenous peoples and Canadians.
