The Entente Canada – Québec stems from the law on official languages that promotes the two official languages, French and English.  Negotiated and signed by Patrimoine canadien and Quebec’s Ministry of Education, the Entente supports minority language instruction and second language instruction.  Within Quebec’s higher education sector, grants are awarded through an annual call for proposals open to colleges (cegeps) and universities. Dawson College faculty and staff who have projects that meet the criteria for the grant are eligible to apply.

Recent projects from Dawson include Entrepreneurship  and Supporting Active Learning & Technological Innovation in Studies of Education (SALTISE). A complete list of all projects funded within Quebec’s higher education sector can be found on the Ministry’s website.


Who can apply for ECQ funding?

Quebec’s Ministry of Higher Education accepts project submissions from post-secondary institutions, CEGEPs and universities.

At Dawson College, faculty and staff who have projects that meet the criteria for the grant are eligible to apply.

What kind of projects get funding from the Entente Canada Québec?

In 2017, SALTISE was awarded a three year grant.  Supporting Active Learning & Technological Innovation in Studies of Education, SALTISE, is a learning community that brings together instructors and educational staff from English and French institutions across Quebec to implement evidence-based pedagogy involving instructional innovations and often leveraging the use of educational technology to promote improved learning.

The Living Campuses’ – Sustainable Dawson initiatives worked in collaboration with Heritage College to bring Honey Bees to the College, this project was funded by an ECQ financial award.

The Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship was also granted funds to run a variety of programming (academic and extra-curricular), as well as the beginning stages of the iCMtl project in collaboration with Cegep Vieux-Montréal

These are only two examples of the types of projects that received funding from the ECQ.
