Dear Bishop’s community,

The members of the Bishop’s Indigenous Cultural Alliance (ICA) have raised concerns about the allocation of space in Kwigw8mna.

Trygve Ugland, Secretary General and Vice-Principal Government Relations and Planning, who is the Project Director for Kwigw8mna, Stine Linden-Andersen, Dean of Student Affairs, Annick Corbeil, Manager of Student Life and I met yesterday with several members of the ICA.

We listened carefully to their concerns and agreed to meet again to propose ways to address them.

We are committed to continuing a respectful dialogue. I am very pleased that Dr. Abel Bosum, Grand Chief of the Grand Council of the Crees (Eeyou – Istchee) and a member of Bishop’s Board of Governors has agreed to partner with all of us as we seek a way forward that we can all embrace.

Michael Goldbloom, C.M.
Principal and Vice-Chancellor
