To help support a growing need for education focused on working with First Nation communities, Confederation College has established a new Indigenous Governance and Public Administration program.

Don Bernosky is the Vice President of Workforce Development and he says the one-year course will provide opportunities in education and training, ultimately leading to employment.

He says it will help prepare graduates for future leadership opportunities and help them build relationships and support economic development in their communities.  

Bernosky notes the program will also develop skills in Nation-to-Nation building and aligns with their goal for more Indigenous learning.
