U of T Scarborough breaks ground on Indigenous House - an inclusive space

Construction is about to begin on Indigenous House, a new gathering place at the University of Toronto Scarborough that’s dedicated to learning about Indigenous culture and ways of knowing.

The 10,700 square foot (994 square metre) building, located on a sloping piece of land south of the Instructional Centre on campus, will overlook the surrounding Highland Creek ravine.

Professor Wisdom Tettey, U of T vice-president and principal of U of T Scarborough, says Indigenous House is a reflection of the university’s commitment to addressing the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

“Indigenous House will be an iconic building that will bring together our Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, and will be an inclusive space honouring Indigenous ways of knowledge locally and from across Turtle Island.”
