  • Women's group

    • Women gather to support one another as they go to university.

  • Accessibility Services

    • Your learning needs are met by a university staff member to let you know about learning accommodations, technology or assessments.

  • Writing and Learning Supports

  • Library Support

    • Subject librarians can help with research, ideas and possible resources for your studies.

  • Counselling Services

    • All counselling sessions (including those already booked at Iniskim) will now take place at Wellness Services. If you previously booked a counselling session, you will be contacted directly by your counsellor to discuss additional options for your session (e.g. if you are ill, would prefer not to come to campus, or if the counsellor is unable to come to campus). If you are interested in attending a counselling session and are not currently seeing a counsellor at Mount Royal, you can contact Student Counselling Services to discuss your options for support.

The Iniskim Centre offers programs and services to increase the engagement and success of Indigenous students while also raising awareness of Indigenous peoples and cultures. 

Mount Royal University is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina, and the Îyârhe Nakoda. We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. The traditional Blackfoot name of this place is Mohkinstsis, which we now call the City of Calgary. The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation.

We recognize and respect the diversity of all Indigenous peoples of Canada. We also increase awareness of distinct Indigenous cultures, history and protocols across the University.
