David Barnard, president, University of Manitoba:
In this part of the country there is a large number of indigenous people, an especially large of young indigenous people. Universities in this part of Canada are quite good at attracting people who have post-secondary credentials to come to university or to say it another way, people who have the drive to finish post-secondary education in the indigenous community know that going on to university or college is a good thing.
But what we need to do is help larger numbers of those people get ready from those communities, get ready to go to post-secondary education, to come and succeed and to participate fully in all the range of educational options and professional options that are available to them.
