A Place of Activity and Growth

People from all nations – Indigenous and non-Indigenous – are welcome to our events and to use our services. We offer our services to students in culturally appropriate ways to create genuine understandings and to learn more about Indigenous Peoples.

What We Offer

At First Peoples@Seneca, we offer advisement, study spaces, tutoring, cultural and social events, resources, clubs and more.

Land Acknowledgement

Land Acknowledgement for Seneca campuses of Newnham, Seneca@York, Markham and King, including the Williams Treaty.

Seneca would like to acknowledge the land on which its buildings are housed, and where students, faculty, support staff and members of the public gather. This land is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We are guests on this space, and it is our shared obligation to respect, honour and sustain the land.

TRC86 is a collaborative project, created by third-term data journalism students at Seneca, with the support of Journalists for Human Rights’ (JHR) Indigenous Reporters program. Learn more about TRC86.
