Aboriginal Institutes' Consortium

The vision of the Aboriginal Institutes' Consortium is that Aboriginal owned, operated and controlled member institutes are funded and recognized in meeting the needs of First Nations people.
The Aboriginal Institutes' Consortium is comprised of Aboriginal controlled post-secondary education and training institutes working collectively to secure adequate resources to support the development and to promote the recognition of member institutes.The AIC was established in 1994 as a forum to address the collective issues impacting its member institutes. The Consortium consists of seven Aboriginal owned and controlled education and training institutions. Aboriginal institutions have successfully delivered post-secondary programs and services in Ontario since 1985 and currently deliver programs to 4000 learners per year.The Consortium is supported by the Chiefs of Ontario to "ensure the existence of free standing, fully funded, recognized and accredited post-secondary institutions in Ontario;" and "to facilitate and Ontario-wide process toward federal / provincial recognition of Aboriginal controlled post-secondary institutions."
