Description:The Indigenous Social Work programs are nationally accredited, so we have become the School of Indigenous Social Work (SISW). Our certificate and degree programs prepare you to enter the field of human service as social workers across Canada with a special emphasis on working with First Nation individuals, families, groups, and communities. The Indigenous Social Work program is available on all three campuses.

The mission of the School of Indigenous Social Work is to provide social work knowledge and develop skills founded upon First Nations culture, values and philosophy in order to work effectively in all settings. The main focus is to enhance the strengths of First Nations individuals, families, groups and communities, supporting self-determination. First Nations spirituality, philosophies, ideology, knowledge and methodologies are the foundation of the School of Indigenous Social Work. It is our communal belief in First Nations self-determination and our respect for the strengths of First Nations cultures, that maintain our commitment to ensuring that we, as faculty, administration and support staff, continue to develop, research, share and fully honour this foundation.
