2nd edition of the Conference on First Nations
Parental and Community Involvement

Over 90 participants attended the 2nd edition of the Conference on First Nations Parental and Community Involvement held in Saint-Sauveur last week. This represents a 33% increase over last year’s edition which attracted 60 participants.

The goal of this year’s conference was to raise awareness of how important it is that parents, schools and communities create strong partnerships with each other to better support First Nations student success.

Thanks to the high turnout of parents and school principals, the theme of the I’m involved! awareness campaign, “Building Relationships”, was truly fulfilled. The FNEC would like to thank everyone who made this 2nd edition a success!

The conference program was rich and varied addressing a host of subjects including parenting skills, school, home and community partnerships, parents committees and policy development, student retention and success, parental involvement in the IEP process, technology in schools, bullying, and more. The FNEC is proud to inform you that the level of satisfaction among participants of the 2nd edition and their comments have gone beyond everyone’s expectations. 

Based on our experience at this edition, we are considering making this an annual event… stay tuned!
