The Cree Teacher Training Program aims to increase the number of qualified local teachers in our schools.
Become a teacher in your community!
This is a CSB-funded program, operated through our partnership with McGill University’s Office of First Nations and Inuit Education. It is designed specifically to engage Cree people in the education sector as qualified elementary teachers. Graduates of this program will hold a Quebec teaching license.

This program is open to Cree beneficiaries. You will need your CEGEP Diplôme d'études collégiales/Diploma of Collegial Studies. Students who are over 23 may apply with a completed Secondary V diploma.
If you are First Nations or Inuit living in a Cree community, you may be eligible, should you be interested in applying.
