Native and Cultural Communities Prize (CSN)
The Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN), the Fédération nationale des enseignantes et enseignants du Québec (FNEEQ) and the Fédération des employées et employés de services publics (FEESP) award two cash prizes of $2000 to individuals who are members of a cultural or Native community and who have chosen to practise a traditionally male-dominated trade or occupation. One prize is awarded to the best candidate enrolled in vocational training and the other, to the best candidate enrolled in technical training.
Women do not have to be regional winners to apply for these prizes.
The candidate’s portfolio must include her letter of introduction and her answers to the following questions :
- As a member of a cultural or Native community, what obstacles have you had to face?
- Were you encouraged to fulfill your ambition? If so, how?
- What motivated you to choose a nontraditional trade or occupation?
