Nîsôhkamâtotân Centre

NAIT is dedicated to supporting the Aboriginal student experience

The Nîsôhkamâtotân Centre is a community gathering place where Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students can gather to network, study and share their post-secondary learning experiences.  It is a place where culture and tradition are welcome and encouraged.

The centre is an integral part of the overall NAIT community and is committed to ensuring Aboriginal student success both inside and outside of the classroom.  We encourage you to drop by anytime during office hours and experience the warm, welcoming environment the centre has to offer.


At the Nîsôhkamâtotân Centre, our purpose is to strengthen NAIT by creating an inclusive community and by drawing strength from Aboriginal communities.
