Creation of a First Nations Post-Secondary Institution
In the scope of the Socioeconomic Forum held in Mashteuiatsh, in 2006, the ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) granted their support to the FNEC for the creation of a First Nations Post-Secondary Institution.
After several years spent in finding the appropriate site, preparing the study programs, negotiations and meetings, etc., the FNEC finally obtained in November 2010 official approval from the authorities for this project. It is in 2011 that we celebrated the official opening of the Kiuna Institution located in the community of Odanak.
Kiuna is a dynamic and innovative college, deeply rooted in indigenous cultures. Its objective is to equip this generation to take on the challenges it faces at the individual, community or national level. Since its opening, Kiuna celebrated the graduation of over 105 students.
