Canada Post Awards for Indigenous Students

The Canada Post Awards for Indigenous Students celebrate the hard work and determination of Indigenous peoples who have embraced a renewed pursuit of learning. The awards are open to all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples who have been out of school for one year or more, who have since decided to return to an educational system, and who have now been back at school for at least one year. The Canada Post Awards for Indigenous Students are granted annually to select applicants from across the country, and recipients are awarded $2,000 in recognition of their efforts.
