Be-Dah-Bin Gamik...Place of New Beginning
Be-Dah-Bin Gamik, a Place of New Beginnings, provides services for Aboriginal students at Conestoga College, including those who are First Nations (status and non-status), Metis and Inuit. It is a warm, welcoming and comfortable environment that assists students with a smooth transition to college life by providing ongoing student support.
The service includes social and cultural events and activities, un-traditional counselling services, and Elders-in-Residence programs and the Aboriginal Student Association.

“We believe that Aboriginal parents and Aboriginal communities must have the opportunity to implement their vision of education. ... It is vital that Aboriginal parents and families be able to become involved, articulating and shaping the education they want for their children.”
(RCAP, 1996, pp. 442 - 443).
