FNMI Admission

The Faculty of Health Sciences demonstrates its commitment to Aboriginal peoples and communities by offering admission to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit applicants. This is to ensure that we are:

  • following the University of Lethbridge’s fundamental principles and key strategic priorities to ensure that our programs meet the needs of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities
  • addressing Call to Action #7 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada to eliminate educational and employment gaps between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians

Applicants who have declared their Aboriginal ancestry at the time of application will have special consideration designed to help address the traditional underrepresentation of Aboriginal people in health professions. For more information, contact an Academic Advisor.
