Due to school closure (Coronavirus COVID-19): Please contact the Montreal PSSS office on Monday if you wish to travel home. Your sponsorship will not be affected during your school’s closure.
Following the Quebec Government’s closure of educational institutions for two weeks, Cree School Board leadership today has made arrangements for sponsored Post-Secondary students affected by these closures.
Please note that the risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19) remains low in Eeyou Istchee; it is important that you take every precaution if you choose to return to your community. These include vigilant hand-washing, and staying away from others if you feel unwell.
If you travelled out of the country in the past 14 days, we ask you please to contact the Cree Board of Health and Social Services for advice before returning to your community.
We are committed to your continued success, and hope you remain positive during this time.
We support Cree Nation students who choose to advance their education at Cégep, college, university or through professional training.
Navigating the world of education beyond secondary school can be confusing. What type of education do I need? What schools should I consider? What prerequisites do I need? How will I afford university? Where will I live? The questions can be overwhelming.
