May 11, 2017

Officials from Prince Edward Island’s Holland College and Collège de l'Île recently travelled to the Magdalen Islands with an eye to attract more students to their programs. CBC reports that the officials emphasized the strong ties between the Acadian and Francophone community, and informed students about a new partnership that will allow them to take courses at both institutions. “So now with being able to take French programming for the students from the Magdalens and for the English-speaking students, they can also come and take our programming,” said Ross Young, international student coordinator for Holland. Collège de l'Île’s Director of Communications Dominique Chouinard added that both colleges are currently “on the upswing” in the Magdalen Islands. CBC
