The Theme

Recognizing the importance of education to economic, social and health outcomes, Queen's University organized a conference in June 2011 on Indigenous Issues in Post-Secondary Education.  Suggestions were made at that conference to hold a follow-up event in two years. That time is coming.  The second Queen’s conference will be held in Toronto on October 6 - 7, 2013.  The 2011 conference focused on drawing a larger number of Aboriginal students to Canada's colleges and universities and ensuring their success. The 2013 conference will shift attention to the transition from colleges and universities to the workplace.  

The conference will be of interest to a wide array of educators, including senior administrators, those involved in Aboriginal programs and student houses and faculty and staff supporting job placement services.  Public and private sector employers seeking to recruit college and university graduates should also find the conference to be of value.
