Officially launched on November 25, 2021, First Nations Executive Education (FNEE) is the realization of the vision of Manon Jeannotte (Mi’gma) and Me Ken Rock (Innu), two McGill EMBA– HEC Montréal graduates. This school, co-built with HEC Montréal’s Executive Education, offers certified, university-level training programs for elected officials, managers, and entrepreneurs. The “Women and Leadership” program was also recently launched and is already a great success.

FNEE is a one-of-a-kind concept, and the teachers who facilitate the various trainings are professors from HEC Montréal and First Nations educators.

FNEE is proud to collaborate with Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) to offer awareness training on Indigenous issues and realities, as part of the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification process.  These trainings are tailored to meet the specific needs of companies undertaking the PAR certification program, and typically cover the following:

  • History and realities of Indigenous peoples in Quebec and Canada:
    • Who are Indigenous peoples: History, identity, and terminology
    • The history of residential schools and the historical impacts of colonization
    • Canadian laws and policies applicable to Indigenous peoples (Indian Act, land claims, treaties)
    • Myths and realities
  • Guiding principles and best practices in a corporate context:
    • Cultural differences, prejudices and preconceptions, and unconscious biases
    • Guiding principles of reconciliation for businesses
    • Best practices: hiring, procurement, engagement, and business support
    • Integration and cultural safety of Indigenous employees

Companies that participate in FNEE’s “Indigenous Issues and Realities” awareness trainings gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of these matters, as well as concrete tools to confidently and meaningfully engage with Indigenous communities, businesses, and employees.
