Atlantic Colleges Atlantique (ACA) signs MOU for online training collaboration
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.

Student from Mexico makes his dream come true at the Collège!
This year, as he was entering his fourth year at university, he learned the exciting news that at last, he would be participating in the Proyecta 10,000 program in the summer of 2017. Along with six other students from Mexico, Mauricio arrived at Collège de l’Île this past July 3 to take part in an intensive four-week immersion program in English.
“I speak English, but I want to expand my vocabulary,” explains Mauricio. “To me this is a necessary part of my studies in mechatronic engineering, because I have to be able to communicate with people from all over the world, and English is often the language that people have in common.”

Learning for real life - we live it every day at the Collège!
Alpha 1-2-3 featured at the 2017 Education Summit
The Third Education Summit was held on May 4 to 6, 2017, simultaneously in Ottawa, Edmonton and Moncton. This event is held every five years to develop and consolidate the network of Francophone schools across Canada. This year, the Summit’s aim was to encourage joint action around three broad areas of development for the French language elementary and secondary education system: instruction/learning, building an identity and cultural diversity.
Alice Bérubé, Coordinator of Skills Development and Literacy at Collège de l’Île, and Elise Boudreau, the Coordinator of Settlement Services for the CIF, a body with the principal mandate of helping French-speaking newcomers, went to Moncton for the occasion and presented the Alpha 1-2-3 program in the hope that it would inspire other stakeholders in Canada’s Francophone community.
