Algoma University was established in 1965 and is located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Algoma University is a small, undergraduate, teaching-focused university that places an emphasis on serving the needs of Northern Ontario. Algoma University offers a wide range of degrees spanning the liberal arts, sciences and professional disciplines. As a partner with Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig, Algoma University has a special mission to cultivate cross-cultural learning between Aboriginal populations and other communities. Algoma University also offers satellite programming in Brampton and Timmins.
Located on the site of the former Shingwauk Indian Residential School, Algoma University offers a unique and historically rich setting for a cross-cultural community where Anishinaabe (First Nation, Metis and Inuit), Canadian and international students and faculty learn from each other in a spirit of friendship and respect. Algoma is committed to providing an educational environment for Anishinaabe students that is respectful, inclusive and welcoming.
The Ontario Native Education Counselling Association has produced videos that provide virtual tours of postsecondary institutions for First Nations, Métis and Inuit learners.
