Algoma University

Algoma University, established in Sault Ste. Marie in 1965, has since grown to include academic programming in Brampton and Timmins. Algoma is a small, undergraduate, teaching-focused university that emphasizes serving the needs of Northern Ontario, providing a wide range of degrees and certificates spanning the liberal arts, sciences, and professional disciplines including offerings through the School of Business and Economics. As a partner with Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig and the Children of Shingwauk Alumni Association, Algoma University has a special mission to cultivate cross-cultural learning between Indigenous populations and other communities.

At Algoma University, students have access to endless opportunities inside and outside of the classroom, allowing for personal growth. Students learn from spirited faculty and benefit from one-on-one interactions. Located on the former site of the Shingwauk Indian Residential School, AU offers a unique and historically rich setting for a cross-cultural community in which Anishinaabe (First Nation, Métis, and Inuit), Canadian, and international students and faculty learn with each other and from one another in a spirit of friendship and respect. Algoma continues to uphold the Seven Grandfather teachings of wisdom, love, respect, bravery, honesty, humility, and truth.
