Launched in November 2020, this program takes its inspiration from the Apaenmowineen: Having confidence in myself program offered by the Native Men’s Residence (Na-Ma-Res) in Toronto. The program promotes the acquisition of life skills ranging from independence, to personal cultural linkages to organization and time management. Residents of PAQ’s transitional housing are the main program participants, but participation is also open to anyone from Montreal’s urban Indigenous community. Participants agree to undertake a 12- week program of training, 15 hours per week, Monday to Friday.
