Province’s community colleges have big economic impact
Charlottetown, June 22, 2017 - Holland College and Collège de l’Île contribute close to $235 million annually to the province’s economy according to a recently released report commissioned by Atlantic Colleges Atlantique.
The Collège is hiring!
Wellington, June 19, 2018 - Collège de l’Île, Prince Edward Island’s French language postsecondary institution, is looking for registered nurses (RN) or licensed practical nurses (LPN) to deliver two programs to train future bilingual health professionals. These positions vary in duration, with a possibility of extension. Full-time positions consist of a 37.5-hour work week.
Make your voice count for quality French language health care
For Francophone clients, language is often the primary tool in health maintenance and restoration. Communicating in their own language makes it easier for clients to ask for help, explain their experiences and conditions, express their needs and preferences, and take charge of their own health.
“Working with community and government partners to improve access to quality French language health services is at the heart of the mission of the PEI French Health Network, said Véronique Duguay, co-chair of the Health Network. That is why we encourage individuals and organizations to take action and get involved by making their voice heard here on the Island, but also across the country.”

New bursary program will support recruiting additional early childhood resources
Charlottetown, May 18, 2018 - Qualified French-speaking early childhood educators are essential for early learning and child care centres to provide children with an environment where they will grow and thrive in French.
“We are currently experiencing a severe human resource shortage in our Francophone early learning and child care centres,“ shared Kathleen Couture, Executive Director of the Association des centre de la petite enfance francophones de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard (ACPEFÎPÉ). “We are at capacity for the number of available certified educators even though there would be physical space to accommodate more children, and the waiting lists are getting longer every day.”
There are eight (8) bursaries available now for individuals ready to commit to taking the two-year Early Childhood Care and Education Program at Collège de l’Île, starting in September 2018. To receive the bursary, candidates must be admitted into that program and must commit to work for a minimum of two (2) years in one of the six (6) Francophone early learning and child care centres located in Prince Edward Island upon graduation.
