I would like to thank the LMDC and the Commissionan Scholair Montreal for giving me the opportunity to travel with them to Montreal to look at different colleges. We visited a lot of different schools but the one I really enjoyed was the École des métiers de la construction de Montréal. They showed us around the school and also took the time and explained to us aboriginal students, how they could help us in different ways, like finding a place to live, help us find a job, and they would be their to help us but, we were warned not to disappoint them by not going to school. This trip really meant alot to me and I learned, no matter how old I am, I could still learn alot. - Pauline Brisk
