Education (First Nations and Inuit Studies)

Can be taken as: Professional Program

The Office of First Nations and Inuit Education (OFNIE) operates under the auspices of the Department of Integrated Studies in Education, the largest department in McGill University’s Faculty of Education.

OFNIE works in partnership with First Nations and Inuit education authorities throughout Quebec – such as the Kativik School Board (KSB), the Cree School Board, the Kahnawake and Kanehsatake education centres, and the Central Quebec School Board on behalf of the Naskapis of Kawawachikamach – to deliver community-based teacher education programs and professional development. OFNIE works collaboratively with its partners to structure the course delivery method. Examples of course delivery methods include; face to face courses, blended courses using technology for follow up and support, community based as well as courses offered on McGill campus. The uniqueness of the course delivery method is the attentiveness that is paid to the students’ learning and well-being.
