Indigenous events

If you identify as an Indigenous person (a member of First Nations, Inuit, or Métis peoples in Canada), you’ll have the chance to join us at a number of events that will introduce you to UBC and its Indigenous community. Take part in fun workshops led by our Indigenous recruiters, get first-hand tips on how to create a strong application, and learn more about what it’s like to be an Indigenous student at UBC.

 

These events will help you navigate the application process and learn more about our two campuses, and each will be hosted virtually via Zoom.
