The Office of Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement (IACE) supports the success of Indigenous students by coordinating educational, financial and cultural resources on campus and in local communities.

IACE’s main responsibility is supporting Indigenous students, but the office has taken on many other roles as well including managing the First Peoples House, building and supporting Indigenous partnerships, and ensuring that Indigenous content and ways of knowing are included in UVic curriculum and events.

The First Peoples House

The First Peoples House (FPH) is a social, cultural and academic centre for Indigenous students at UVic.

The FPH is a home-away-from-home for Indigenous students and provides a safe and welcoming space for learning, sharing and community building. Acknowledging the teachings from these territories, one must enter the House with a good mind and good heart.

The First Peoples House is currently closed due to the Coronavirus and all events, services, classes and programs, including Elders in Residence, are not available until further notice.
