C’est à l’occasion de l’assemblée générale de l’Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC) que Bintou Traoré - étudiante au programme services à la personne au Collège de l’Île - a reçu la bourse nationale d’excellence offerte par le Consortium national de santé en français (CNFS). Le Collège est membre de l’ACUFC et du CNFS.

Wellington, June 26, 2019
- The new Prince Edward Island government’s budget provides Collège de l’Île with a net increase of $5,800 in its operating funding.


The provincial government calculated this 2% increase on only part of the Collège’s funding, the share from the provincial government. In comparison, the consumer price index increased 2.3%, as the Minister of Finance indicated in her budget paper on the economy. This $5,800 is equivalent to the tuition fees paid by one student in the Licensed Practical Nursing program at Collège de l’Île for a single academic year.

On March 16, Collège de l’Île received the Award of Excellence from the Chambre de commerce acadienne et francophone de l’Î.-P.-É. (PEI Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce) for its impact on the community.

The Collège is… dozens of engaged employees, passionate college instructors, competent sessional instructors, motivated second language instructors, hundreds of graduates and alumni who contribute to the vitality of their communities, thousands of second language students who share and spread the love of the French language and thousands of customized training participants who contribute to the growth of their organizations!

Donald DesRoches, president, accepted the award on behalf of past and current Collège de l’Île staff.

Wellington, March 8, 2019 - "Full and free participation by women in society is essential to the development of all our communities, small and large alike. Even though Canada is one of the best countries in the world, and in spite of the protections found in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, too often women are unable to contribute fully to society. Customs and traditions from a less egalitarian time have to evolve. I’m calling here for a paradigm shift. Our ways of doing things are often designed from a male point of view. Ensuring social progress is not just women’s work. Men have an important role to play. We have to accept that how we do things — in assessing the relative importance of housework, in our intimate relationships or in our political actions – often leave room for improvement. Our society does not take full advantage of women’s potential contribution. Let’s use International Women’s Day as an opportunity to do better, for women and for all of us."

Collège de l'Île students and staff took part in this year's Bell Let's Talk awareness campaign. For two weeks, we shared ways of helping, daily quotes, videos and games, in connection with mental health. This was capped off with a joint activity in both campuses (Wellington and Charlottetown) during which participants enjoyed a healthy snack, took part in a workshop about stress management and an active-learning activity to demonstrate the importance of physical fitness to good mental health.

Hats off to all those who participated in the activities!

Wellington, January 14, 2019 – Healthcare professionals in Prince Edward Island now have new opportunities to hone their French language skills at five healthcare facilities in the province.

Café de Paris is a voluntary drop-in language support service offered on location at Maplewood Manor, Community Hospital O’Leary, Prince County Hospital, Beach Grove Home and Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Staff at these facilities can make an appointment with a tutor to review specific language questions or to simply drop in to engage in conversation to help develop, or maintain, their French language speaking skills.

“This drop-in model was successfully piloted last year in three locations,” said Élise Arsenault, Executive Director of the PEI French Language Health Network. “We are pleased to expand on this initial offering through our partnership with the PEI Public Service Commission and Collège de l’Île, PEI’s French language community college.”

Mental health matters and Collège de l'Île is thrilled to join over 200 university and college campuses in every province and territory who are making plans for #BellLetsTalk Day 2019 on January 30!
