A university education is a transformative experience. It challenges students to set high aspirations for themselves and provides the supports they need to achieve them. But First Nations, Métis and Inuit students in Canada do not always have the same opportunities for access and success in higher education as non-Indigenous students. That must change.

Closing the education gap will help Indigenous youth achieve their potential, strengthen their communities and build a better Canada. Universities are committed to helping make this happen by improving access and success for Indigenous students, staff and faculty, and advancing reconciliation.

Universities Canada regularly surveys its member institutions on progress. This publication shares these results for 2017.
