Aboriginal centre launched at Royal Roads University

An unused wooden boat shed is getting a new life as the Aboriginal Learning and Cultural Centre at Royal Roads University in Colwood.
“It will be a combination of teaching and research space,” said Paul Corns, university associate vice-president of community relations and advancement. It will also house the aboriginal co-ordinator already at Royal Roads, and be available to First Nations communities for cultural celebrations.
The goal is to start work next month with it finishing in June, he said Friday. The university is asking contractors for bids by the end of this month.
