Arbor Morris

Arbor Morris (They/Them/He/Him) is a Two-Spirit graduate of George Brown College’s Social Service Worker program (Class of 2022). Arbor is the new Wellness Coordinator here at ISC. Arbor is here to offer free unlimited counseling to the Indigenous Community of Western University and supports. Arbor is located in our back office, which used to be the quite study room. Their drop-in hours are typically Monday-Friday 10am-3:30pm unless stated otherwise on the office white board. They also book appointments via the Jane App @ https://iscuwo.janeapp.com/

Arbor is from a small-town 20 minutes west of Barrie Ontario that is built on the land of traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg people, which include the Wendat, Odawa, Ojibwe, and Pottawatomi Nations collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. This area of Ontario is also Treaty 18 territory. Arbor is Oji-Cree Nation but due to adoption within their family, death, and estrangement, they are in the middle of the journey of learning what being Oji-Cree means and where they belong and navigating spaces as a Oji-Cree and Welsh/Irish settler. Arbor’s (non-blood related) grandparents who adopted them early in life are from Alderville First Nation Territory, and this is the community that Arbor has known for most of their earliest memories as home to them. Come say hi!
