ACA mai2018

Charlottetown, May 18, 2018 - Atlantic Canada’s publicly-funded colleges’ association has a new name, an expanded membership and a new strategic direction. The renewed association will promote the role of public colleges, and effectively collaborate to further economic and social development in Atlantic Canada. Atlantic Colleges Atlantique (ACA) succeeds the former Atlantic Provinces Community College Consortium, and represents all seven public colleges in Atlantic Canada: New Brunswick Community College (NBCC), Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB), Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), Holland College, Université Sainte-Anne, Collège de l'Île and College of the North Atlantic (CNA).

“Atlantic Canada’s publicly-funded colleges make a significant contribution to the economy and to their communities across Atlantic Canada,” said NBCC President and CEO Marilyn Luscombe, current chair of ACA. “As a regional organization, ACA has a strategic priority to raise the profile, brand and awareness of Atlantic Canada’s public colleges, as well as influence public policy with regards to post-secondary education and training and strengthen the public college system in the region.”

Nous sommes en pleine semaine de la santé mentale, du 7 au 13 mai 2018. Au Collège de l’Île, c’est un sujet qui nous tient à cœur ! Afin de #parlerhautetfort et de contribuer à démystifier la santé mentale, nous avons récemment rencontré Janine Gallant, diplômée du Collège, pour qu’elle nous partage son expérience. Janine a eu l’occasion à plusieurs reprises de parler publiquement de santé mentale, y compris dans le cadre d’un symposium organisé par la Commission scolaire de langue française (CSLF), en juin 2017. Voici un extrait vidéo (environ 2 minutes) de notre entrevue avec elle ainsi que l'entrevue au long ci-dessous.



Salut Janine ! Tu viens de quel endroit et quel est ton lien avec le Collège de l’Île ?

Je suis originaire d’Abram-Village, dans la région Évangéline, ici même à l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard. Je suis diplômée du programme services à la personne du Collège. J’ai commencé des études à temps partiel en 2010 et j’ai continué à temps plein, de 2012 à 2014.

La semaine de la santé mentale s’en vient à grands pas et je me demandais pourquoi c’est important pour toi de parler ouvertement de santé mentale.

Je pense qu’une des raisons principales c’est que j’ai vécu moi-même des défis de santé mentale. Quand c’est arrivé, je me sentais seule, comme si je ne pouvais pas en parler. L’étape la plus difficile c’était d’admettre que j’avais un problème. Maintenant, même si je ne suis pas toujours 100 % à l’aise d’en parler, je me force de le faire pour ma famille, pour mes ami.e.s et pour mes collègues de travail pour qu’ils voient que c’est correct d’en parler. Dans le cadre de mon emploi, je travaille avec des familles et c’est important d’en parler dans ce contexte-là aussi pour démystifier le sujet de la santé mentale.

Saviez-vous qu’à chaque année, un Canadien sur cinq vit un problème de santé mentale, mais que TOUS les Canadiens ont une santé mentale?

Ça veut dire que nous connaissons tous quelqu’un qui a eu des défis – un.e. ami.e, un.e collègue de travail ou un.e membre de notre famille – mais que nous ne sommes peut-être pas au courant de leur situation.

– Connecting the student community has never been easier, thanks to a new app launched today.

“We surveyed our students over the last two years and the results were clear: they favour communication through mobile devices,” said Collège de l’Île President, Donald DesRoches. “Two thirds of them have at least 15 apps on their phones and tablets and, they use these devices far more frequently than computers or laptops. Our mobile app is designed to benefit our student population.”

French for the Future 2017 1
Charlottetown, April 24, 2018
– All opportunities for promoting the use of the French language are good opportunities, from mundane everyday activities to taking part in large-scale events such as French for the Future’s Charlottetown Local Forum. That’s exactly what Victoria Gibbs of Little York, PEI, discovered when the she attended her first forum last year.

“I believe that for a lot of students across the country, French is a classroom language which is associated with school and work,” said Ms. Gibbs, a grade 11 student at Charlottetown Rural High School. “French for the Future has shown me that you can live your life in French, make friends, go out, and make amazing memories that will last a lifetime, all in French.”

MOU Protocole dentente
Halifax, March 26, 2018 – A three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) aimed to improve online training opportunities for apprentices on the east coast has been signed among seven post-secondary public colleges in Atlantic Canada.

The MOU was ratified in February during the Atlantic Colleges Atlantique (ACA) meeting at Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) in Halifax. The agreement is the foundation for which the ACA, formerly known as the Atlantic Provinces Community College Consortium (APCCC), will spearhead a collaborative relationship to share the use of existing online training, as well as develop additional online training and resources to expand curriculum.

This MOU will position public colleges in the region to support the Atlantic Apprenticeship Harmonization Project proceeding under the auspices of the Atlantic Apprenticeship Council and cost-shared with the federal government through the Foreign Credential Recognition Program and Employment Insurance Part II. The Council is comprised of the heads of the four provincial apprenticeship authorities and chairs of the respective Apprenticeship Boards. In response to industry demand, Atlantic apprenticeship harmonization aligns apprenticeship training requirements and system processes across the region to facilitate the mobility of apprentices, support an increase in certification rates and enable employers to more easily access the workforce they need.

Wellington, March 8, 2018 - “International Women’s Day is celebrated throughout the world. It’s an opportunity for us to recognize the contribution of Island francophone women to their families, their communities, to the business community, to non-profit organizations and to all areas in which they are present. In this pivotal year, we salute the courage and perseverance of those who spoke out on violence against women in the context of the #metoo movement. Collège de l’Île is proud to contribute to a respectful and safe workplace for all. We are equally proud to contribute to the advancement of all women by providing learning opportunities that empower women here on PEI.”

We were saddened to learn this morning of the significant earthquake which happened overnight off the coast of Mexico. This event caused important damaged to affected areas and loss of life.

The earthquake has mainly affected the State of Chiapas and was felt all the way to Mexico City.

Many of you – our students – are from Mexico and your parents, family members and friends might be affected by this earthquake.
