In support of its Strategic Plan, Canadore College has developed a Tipi (Transforming Indigenous Peoples’ Inquiry) model as an overarching framework to guide the college when working with Indigenous communities. Having a model through which to associate Indigenous initiatives ensures that each initiative, though valuable on its own, contributes to a sustainable direction for the college. Some ongoing initiatives at the college include culturally-appropriate learning spaces, community based delivery, community partnerships, representation on advisory committees, indigenous evaluation, research grants, Indigenous quality assurance standards, Indigenous STEAM, an Indigenous research protocol and a focus on Indigenous learning outcomes.
