Our History

FNTI (First Nations Technical Institute), an Indigenous owned and controlled post-secondary institute, was created in 1985 through innovative and dynamic partnerships between the Tyendinaga Mohawk Council, FNTI Board of Directors, Indian & Northern Affairs Canada, and the Ontario Ministry of Education & Training, to provide access to post-secondary programs for Aboriginal people.

Over 3000 students have successfully graduated from FNTI's certificate, diploma and degree programs since its inception.
