The CFER/WOTP program at Heritage consists of three essential components. Classroom work focuses on developing functional skills in French, English, Mathematics, and Social Studies subjects. These subjects have an underlining focus on autonomy, involvement, and productivity. Second, the CFER program has a business component. The business is incorporated as a non-profit, operating as a real-world organization with contracts, production schedules, and safety regulations. The business provides students the opportunity to complete their work experience hours with the guidance of a team of teachers and professionals. The third component of CFER is the “Caravan”, an environmental project in which CFER students visit elementary schools to raise awareness about the environment and recycling.
CFER Heritage is a member of the CFER network of over 20 other CFERs across Quebec. Each CFER business is centered around some form of recycling. CFER Heritage sorts and recycles electronics from all over Quebec. As electronics recycling is a provincial initiative, CFER Heritage undergoes regular audits to ensure it is following all the rules and regulations that ensure the protection of the environment as well as the protection of the health and safety of the students. Within this business contract, students learn essential skills that will allow them to be successful in the workplace.
