Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives
Sharing the space with the Aboriginal Studies Program, the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives (CAI) is mandated to foster innovative, participatory research with urban Aboriginal peoples and develop collaborations with Aboriginal communities and community organizations. CAI cultivates research related to Indigenous pedagogy, methodologies and epistemology that focus on Aboriginal peoples as cultural workers, social change agents, leaders and thinkers. CAI also supports the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal graduate and undergraduate students, and is working to enhance the visibility of Aboriginal peoples at the University of Toronto.
