Bachelor of Indigenous Social Work
The Bachelor of Indigenous Social Work (BISW) degree program will provide FNTI’s typical high level of academic rigour and Indigenous education, with traditional practices and cultural knowledge, which are expected by Indigenous Peoples across the province.
Indigenous social workers play an integral role in the health and well-being of families and the communities. Changes in legislation have resulted in networks of First Nations child and family services agencies building greater workforce capacity in communities across Ontario and Canada.
Graduates from the program will be equipped to reduce the number of Indigenous children in care. Backed by invaluable Indigenous education, and they will improve systems to be truly child and family centred, community directed, and focused on prevention and early intervention.
