May 23, 2019

Cégep de l'Outaouais has received $300K from the federal government in support of its Project Histoire du Canada - Perspectives des Premiers Peuples. A release states that researchers will work with First Nations across the country to produce publicly available, online educational materials. The materials will also be distributed to educational organizations, associations, and institutions across the country. "It is critical to make the history of the First Peoples known through their own voices, in order to open ourselves to their perspectives and worldviews, which can only enrich the education system and encourage the necessary change in perception, so that future generations can walk together," said Cégep de l'Outaouais History and Geography instructor Diane Le May. Newswire QC
