Welcome to KIUNA Institution
Even though the Social Science – First Nations program was designed by and for First Nations, it is also open to non-Aboriginals! If you are interested in subjects like history, art, and anthropology, this ministry-approved program is also for you. It can be your
stepping stone to university level studies in social sciences.
Kiuna’s welcoming atmosphere and array of student services will undoubtedly meet your expectations.
Developed in collaboration with First Nations, the First Nations Social Science program 300.B0 meets all requirements of the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MÉES). Courses primarily focus on three themes of personal and collective development: identity, community and society. Find out more
The opening of Kiuna Institution was the result of extensive work driven by one motive: to offer First Nations youth a college dedicated specifically to them with a learning environment that reflects their cultural differences, social backgrounds and interests. Find out more
The skills Kiuna students acquire are equivalent to the ones gained by students enrolled in social science programs offered in any other college in Quebec. Find out more

Information on the Odanak community
Based on its interest in the project, its geographical location and the services it offers, the Abenaki community of Odanak was selected to be the site of Kiuna Institution. Only a 35-minute drive from Trois-Rivières, and located in the heart of the province of Quebec, Odanak is a dynamic and thriving community that takes advantage of its proximity to urban centres to stimulate local economic development.
