The Aboriginal Women’s Certificate Program is designed as a full-time program for Aboriginal women who wish to pursue university studies. The program is designed as a transitional program that will assist Aboriginal women, many of whom may be mothers of young children, in overcoming a variety of academic, cultural and linguistic barriers. Embedded within a holistic system of support that will assist Aboriginal women in achieving their full academic potential, the certificate program is designed to offer culturally appropriate advising, and assist with childcare liaison support throughout the duration of the program. Further, through academic rigor the program is intended to provide the women with solid transferrable skills to successfully transition into an undergraduate program.
