The VCC Indigenous Education and Community Engagement department is pleased to share that the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training has announced an additional $27,000 of funding to support VCC Indigenous students who are facing unexpected financial hardship.
“We know there are a variety of financial challenges that can arise, often without warning, causing great distress," says Clayton Munro, Dean of Indigenous Initiatives. "This increase in Indigenous Emergency Assistance Funds can make a significant difference in our ability to respond quicker and provide much needed support, especially in light of these increasingly difficult times.”
