The Kwitn Program is a new interdisciplinary bridging program that will allow students to explore their interests in science, technology, and business in a small group setting with their peers and learn about careers related to these fields of study. Students will gain valuable academic skills to set them on a path for success in their chosen degree programs. During the Kwitn Program, students will have continued access to tutoring and receive assistance to find relevant summer job placements.
They are now accepting applications for the September 2018 cohort. If you know students who would be interested in exploring their educational and career options by taking courses in videography, coding, entrepreneurship, and Indigenous science, please share this exciting new program information with them or invite them to apply online at https://www.cbu.ca/come-to-cbu/apply-now/#apply.

First Nations Education in Quebec:
Chiefs and the First Nations Education Council Working Together to Improve Education in their Communities
Montréal, April 5, 2018 – Chiefs of First Nations communities in Quebec, in association with the First Nations Education Council (FNEC), are gathered in Montréal today to discuss important issues related to elementary and secondary education in their communities. They are convinced their children need access to quality education, and they want to draw on the knowledge of their professionals in education and collective vision to develop a funding formula that will enable their schools to provide high quality and culturally adapted education services, and give their students opportunities for higher education.
Discussions were also held on the need to maintain special education services for at-risk students in First Nations schools and the importance of meeting the actual needs of the communities. Invited to participate in this very important meeting, the Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador, Ghislain Picard, reminded those in attendance of the seriousness with which the communities are pursuing their efforts to create an education system that gives their children the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. Chief Picard stated, “Education is essential, and we are gathered here today to find solutions and courses of action that will make it possible to foresee an improvement of the education services offered in our communities.”
In devoting this day to the future of our children, we do not claim to address all current problems, but we are demonstrating our collective will to engage in a process to improve elementary and secondary education for First Nations youths in Quebec.
About the FNEC
For over 30 years, the FNEC has been working to fulfill the right of First Nations to have complete authority over their education through the implementation of an education system that has adequate resources, and that is developed and managed according to their values and cultures.
