Kiuna opens satellite classrooms in Mauricie, Lac-Saint-Jean


Kiuna College has opened satellite classrooms in Mauricie and Lac-Saint-Jean to better serve rural and remote Indigenous people across Québec. Last year, the college opened a satellite classroom in Wemotaci, Mauricie as a pilot project. Following the success of the Wemotaci branch, Kiuna has welcomed a second cohort this year to the classroom, as well as opened another classroom in Alma at the Centre Mamik, with the aim of serving the Indigenous community of Lac-Saint-Jean. Kiuna directrice générale Prudence Hannis said that in opening these satellite classrooms, Kiuna hopes to bolster access to education for young people in isolated communities.
