The IICC is a safe and welcoming space for all students. We offer programs and activities to foster connection amongst people and create a sense of belonging across diverse groups.
International Peer Mentor Program
Students who are new to studying in Canada can signup as mentees and join the International Peer Groups to meet other peers. The groups are led by International Peer Mentors who are senior students at NAIT. The mentors will share their NAIT and Edmonton experience with mentees and provide support for their cultural transition.
International Engagement Events
NAIT offers a variety of fun student events through the year to support international and newcomer students in building community as they transition to NAIT and to Canada.
