The First Peoples Service (FPS) team is there to offer personalized support to all the Val-d’Or campus students. Over the years, the team has developed an expertise that meets specific needs of Aboriginal students, whether at the academic, personal or cultural levels. FPS offers a personalized welcome, in French and English, as well as pedagogical support adapted to the needs of Aboriginal students, who, in many cases, are returning to school.
« At UQAT, I feel respected. I am valued as a person and as an Anishnabe. »
