Education & training
Concordia University offers a Major and Minor in First Peoples Studies (FPST). FPST students have had an officially recognized Student Association since 2015.
The vision of the NETWORK is to improve the quality of life of the Aboriginal people in the greater Montreal area through a coordinated approach with a focus on arts and culture, Communications, Employability and Education, Health, Social Services and Youth. Working committees were created and consist of volunteers that bring experience to these areas, as well a Steering Committee was formed with one rep per committee to share information and progress. They host several events throughout the year open to anyone with an interest in Aboriginal issues.
MAMU! is an annual Aboriginal Employment and Education Fair held in Montreal at various locations to engage people in education, training and employing Aboriginal peoples in the Greater Montréal area. 2016 marked its 5th year in action!
Be sure to check out the Montréal Aboriginal Reference Guide provided by the Montréal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategy NETWORK for a complete guide to resources in the greater Montréal area that serve the First Nations, Inuit and Metis nations.
