Quebec's only off-reserve Indigenous school set to close after only 1 year


January 30, 2017

Five months after the groundbreaking Tshiueten project began, the only off-reserve school in Quebec focusing on the educational needs of Indigenous students just starting out in school will close.

The Saguenay area school board voted unanimously last Tuesday to stop the project at the end of this school year, because the province hasn't renewed a $205,000 grant it gave the board to launch the school, and on its own, the board can't afford to meet the students' special needs.
