Aboriginal Canada Portal Closure Notice

The Aboriginal Canada Portal will be closing February 12, 2013.

The Aboriginal Canada Portal was developed in 2001, when it was more difficult to find Aboriginal resources and services on the internet. There are now a wide variety of Aboriginal resources online and the rise of search engines and social media have rendered the Portal web site obsolete. For these reasons, the Aboriginal Canada Portal will be closed effective February 12, 2013. If you have any links to the Aboriginal Canada Portal on your web site, please remove or redirect them by February 12.

Two of the more popular components of the Aboriginal Canada Portal site have been improved and transferred to the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) departmental web site.

The Aboriginal Bursaries Search Tool is a searchable list of more than 680 bursaries, scholarships and incentives across Canada, targeted to Aboriginal students in high school and already in university. This mobile-friendly web tool is available on the AANDC web site at the following address:

The Connectivity for Aboriginal and Northern Communities in Canada maps illustrate the progress of projects to increase connectivity and broadband internet access in Aboriginal and northern communities. These interactive maps are available on the AANDC web site at the following address:

Alternate sources of other information previously available on the Aboriginal Canada Portal are:
