Gabriel Dumont Institute

The Gabriel Dumont Institute of Native Studies and Applied Research, Inc. (GDI) was formally incorporated as a non-profit corporation in 1980 to serve the educational and cultural needs of the Saskatchewan Métis and Non-Status Indian community. GDI offers a variety of accredited educational, vocational and skills training opportunities for the province's Métis in partnership with the University of Regina, the University of Saskatchewan, the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology, the province's various regional colleges, and Service Canada. As a completely Métis-directed educational and cultural entity, GDI is unique in Canada. The Institute develops Métis-specific curriculum and historical publications, offers labour market training and employment services.
