This initiative brings stakeholders one step closer to fulfilling the commitment of Manitoba’s Post-Secondary Institutions to the Manitoba Collaborative Indigenous Education Blueprint (est. 2015) in the development of a coordinated provincial approach that supports students throughout their academic journey in a culturally appropriate, relevant, and needs-based ways.
To truly achieve substantive equality for Indigenous students in the Manitoban academic, industrial, and economic landscape.
Horizon has been designed with student needs in mind and can be easily searched in two ways:
By organization/institution: Users can search all organizations in the database under SOURCES OF SUPPORT where they are listed by name with descriptions of, and link to, the services they offer.
By specific need: They have the ability to search by need under SUPPORTS FOR STUDENTS. Clicking on the type of service/support required will generate a search for all resources related to that particular need from every organization in the database.
Database of Organizations
Organizations are listed by name with descriptions of the services they offer and links to their home page and specific programs.
Most organizations have multiple departments, programs, and resources, so as much as possible, they have been divided into categories according to how they self-identify or where they fit best.
Indigenous led organizations and/or resources intended exclusively for Indigenous peoples, have been weighted to appear at the top of every page.
The “submit a resource” section welcomes additions and edits to the database.
