University of Toronto Initiative on Indigenous Governance
University of Toronto Initiative on Indigenous Governance

The Initiative is a partnership between the University of Toronto and the National Centre for First Nations Governance (NCFNG) that was formally established with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in October 2009 by University of Toronto Provost Cheryl Misak and NCFNG president Herb George (Satsan). The university has also developed an ongoing partnership with the Anishinabek Nation (Union of Ontario Indians), which represents 40 member First Nations in Ontario. There are now a number of collaborative projects under development with both partners. The Initiative is guided by a committee of elders, Aboriginal Studies faculty, and representatives of participating faculties, schools, and departments and is housed at the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives.
