Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC)

The Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC) provides information and support before and after you become a CNC student that will help you achieve your educational goals. We strive to provide culturally safe services and facilities to Indigenous students. 

ARC staff liaise with the students’ Indigenous communities & organizations to support their success.

ARC provides a drop-in Study Centre and supports culturally safe activities for Indigenous students. The Staff at ARC provide moral support, encouragement and “a friendly listening post” to Indigenous students whenever possible.

Our Vision:

Together we can raise awareness of Aboriginal issues and promote a new relationship of cooperation and a sharing of knowledge.

    I learned to embrace who I am and incorporate that into every ounce of my being. Whether it’s parenting, studying or working, I learned the importance of Indigenizing my process.

Indigenous students attending CNC have access to a culturally safe and familiar environment to call home. The fully furnished building is built next to existing student housing on the Prince George campus. In addition to the 12 rooms, two of which are accessible, there is a shared kitchen, living area, washrooms and laundry facilities. There is also a two-bedroom suite for an Elder, who will be a student mentor and adviser.
