Aboriginal Recognition Ceremony

Celebrate Your Achievements and Culture

Congratulations on wrapping up the Winter 2021 semester! This past year has brought many unexpected challenges and Aboriginal Services would like to recognize you for your efforts!

In lieu of our annual Aboriginal Recognition Ceremony, Okanagan College's Aboriginal Services invites current self-identified Indigenous students to sign up to:

  • Have a free congratulatory gift sent to their home address
  • Submit a photo of yourself to be included in our virtual Aboriginal student recognition photo album (please send photos to jmacdonald@okanagan.bc.ca)

Aboriginal Services has also reached out to a number of community members who would like to share their best wishes for you in a brief video that will be featured on the Okanagan College Aboriginal Services web page along with the photo's submitted.

The registration deadline is Sunday, April 11, 2021.


Please note that the Aboriginal Recognition Ceremony is not a formal OC convocation and does not confer diplomas, degrees or certificates. Rather this is a way of honouring our Aboriginal students, family and community members in a culturally respectful manner.

Registration closes on April 11, 2021.
