Since the creation of these joint programs, more than twenty-five 9-credit microprogram certificates and more than twenty 15-credit short program certificates have been awarded. The programs have also enabled some students to obtain a 30-credit specialized higher education diploma (DESS) allowing them to pursue a master’s degree in public administration (management) at ENAP. A DESS graduate is currently enrolled in a tailor-made doctoral program in traditional Aboriginal governance at UQAT.
The joint programs reflect a commitment to institutional collaboration on the part of ENAP, UQAT and UQAC. First offered in 2018, they received financial support from Indigenous Services Canada through the Post-Secondary Partnerships Program. They were developed at the request of Aboriginal stakeholders, with the support of the First Nations Education Council (FNEC). The programs aim to make a tangible contribution to strengthening governance in Indigenous communities.
Our three institutions are united in a sincere desire to recognize the dedication shown by these students and to congratulate them on their success.
