Recognition Mention

Get involved and shine !


Are you looking to stand out with an employer or distinguish yourself in your university application? The ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de la Science (MESRS) or the ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) recognises your commitment and will give you a mention in your transcript for your involvement in an extracurricular activity.

Your commitment will allow you to increase your autonomy within a stimulating environment, all the while developing your sense of belonging. You will then have the opportunity to realize your true potential and have it acknowledged.
