First Peoples' House


First Peoples' House

Standing true to our beliefs as First Peoples and guided by our cultural teachings, the First Peoples' House provides an environment of empowerment for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) learners to achieve personal and academic growth.

Our vision is to demonstrate our commitment to the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit student community on campus and provide services that reflect this responsibility. We will continue to honour the Indigenous worldview of education as a continuous ceremony of learning by respecting and supporting the voices and spirit of our student community at the University of Alberta.

First Peoples' House staff are available Monday to Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM for remote services, including email, phone, or Google Hangout. Students are urged to email to access remote services.

If you would like one of the FPH team members to contact you, please fill out this form. We will respond during our regular office hours. Please note our response times may be delayed due to a higher than normal volume of requests.

During a situation like we’re experiencing with COVID-19, it's not uncommon to experience strong emotions. If you need to talk to someone, our Student Wellness Worker Tracy Suter is here to listen. She is available through email, phone or Google Hangouts. Feel free to contact her directly at to set up an appointment. 

Our wonderful Elders, Francis Whiskeyjack and Elsey Gauthier are still here to support you even though they are also working remotely. They are available to chat with students over the phone or by email. Please contact us at and we will connect you with them.
