The IB&M Initiative was established in 1989 to reduce structural and systemic discrimination by increasing the representation of the Indigenous Black and Mi'kmaw people in the legal profession.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    The primary focus of the IB&M Initiative is on students who are either: Indigenous Black Nova Scotians (individuals who are Black and were born and raised in Nova Scotia, or who have a substantial connection with a historically Black community in Nova Scotia), or Mi'kmaq (individuals who are Mi'kmaq and were born and raised in Mi'kmaqi or have a substantial connection with a Mi'kmaw community in Mi'kmaqi).
