The best way to set yourself up for future success in life is to invest in education and network with the friends and colleagues around you to turn that education into meaningful employment and a satisfying career.

Developing the knowledge and the skills to pursue a field that makes the most of your potential is as challenging as it is rewarding. If you start planning now and make a realistic assessment of what motivates you and makes you passionate, the next step is determining how to gain the expertise you need to do what you love.

Some find it difficult deciding what program is right for them. Not everyone may feel as though they have a single calling or clear vision for their work life. Thankfully there are a number of options available to those looking to hone their skills, embark on a new education experience or simply return to school to take on a new challenge and shift into a different industry.

Numerous colleges and universities in northern Quebec have programs specifically designed for First Nations students that are based around the employment needs and job opportunities within Eeyou Istchee. Whether you are looking for a college diploma, university degree, technical certificate or continuing education, the academic options available to members of the Cree Nation outlined here can help you prepare for your studies and equip you to succeed in a career of your choosing.

The Nation’s very own in-house copy editor Martin Siberok is a journalism prof at Vanier, so we can testify to this Cégep’s quality faculty. Vanier, in fact, is a creative arts powerhouse, and is the only public English-language Cégep to offer a fully accredited music program.

Besides a strong selection of career programs (including Nursing, Special Care Counselling and Architectural Technology), Vanier has special pre-university double DEC programs, where students do their core courses in two different programs over a three-year period.

The Circle supports the personal wellbeing and academic goals of Aboriginal students during their time at the college. This can include anything from providing support during the transition from a small community to an urban setting, understanding college life, developing effective study skills, or providing a safe social network for students to get together.

Montreal Universities

Montreal is a world-renowned city, but part of what gives the city its edge is its four large universities. While each has its own reputation, some of the fields of excellence that Montreal is recognized for include medicine, education, law, hard science and social sciences.

McGill University

Often on the list of top universities across the world, Canada’s Ivy League school attracts world-renowned professors and researchers in many scientific, legal and medical fields. Top marks and work habits will be a requirement simply for acceptance to the McGill campus in downtown Montreal.

Last year, McGill launched an Indigenous Studies program under its Institute for the Study of Canada, an interdisciplinary minor program designed to bring First Nations issues to the forefront. The program will investigate “historical, social, and cultural dimensions of Indigenous life in Canada.” Courses look at the treatment of Indigenous life, the experience of Indigeneity and gender, Indigenous resistance to the Canadian government, among others. In future years, the goal is to expand the program to include a major option, and many hope the program will expand into an institute on campus.
