About MWC

The Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (MWC), formerly Mi'kmaq-Maliseet Institute (MMI), is a centre for First Nations education studies in the Atlantic region.

The centre administers programs for First Nations students at the University of New Brunswick and helps First Nations students enter the undergraduate faculty of their choice.

MWC currently offers the following programs: Bridging Year; Bachelor of Education for First Nations Students; and our newest program, the First Nations Governance and Leadership Certificate.

MWC serves and works closely with the First Nations communities in the Atlantic provinces, expanding the professional horizons of young adults and mature students.

The more than 150 graduates of the BEd program and a growing group of Business Administration graduates are bringing their new expertise to the First Nations of the region.
