Indigenous Elder Advisory Circle

The Indigenous Elder Advisory Circle (IEAC) ensures that Indigenous Elders are consistently engaged in decision-making within the University. The Circle includes Elders and Knowledge Keepers from both Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Nations. The IEAC works in collaboration with various groups across the University to support several priorities and initiatives, each of which focus on Indigenous Peoples in relationship with Queen's.
