About Us

The First Nations House of Learning (FNHL), based in the First Nations Longhouse, was created in 1984, and officially opened its doors in 1987.

Our mandate is to make the University’s vast resources more accessible to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people and to improve its ability to meet their needs.

We do this by:

  • organizing and maintaining Longhouse student services and spaces
  • overseeing public and academic programming at the Longhouse
  • leading and supporting strategic planning and communications on Indigenous engagement initiatives
  • providing a point of contact for Indigenous communities

We also often engage with the members of the public, the media, and UBC personnel on Indigenous issues.
