FNTI Celebrates 35 Years
FNTI was fully incorporated as the First Nations Technical Institute by the province of Ontario on July 31, 1985. Throughout the next year, the Indigenous institute will be featuring alumni and student stories and successes, shining the spotlight on historic milestones, offering glimpses into its new student-centric virtual classroom, and inviting the world to experience a day in the life of an FNTI student in Indigenous post-secondary education.
FNTI is an Indigenous-owned and governed post-secondary institution on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory on the beautiful Bay of Quinte. FNTI has been delivering post-secondary programs rooted in culture and Indigenous ways of knowing in partnership with recognized Ontario colleges and universities for 35 years. Beginning in Winter 2021 FNTI will be delivering its standalone Bachelor of Indigenous Social Work program.
Over 4,000 FNTI graduates are practicing professionals in all sectors of the economy including social, health and wellness; administration; policy and governance; aviation technology; early childhood education; restorative justice; and film and media.
