Welcome

A CFER program consists of three basic components. Classroom work is focused on developing functional skills in Language Arts, Mathematics and Social Studies again with the goal of promoting autonomy, engagement and productivity. A CFER also has a business component which is run as a business.

About Us

CFER Riverdale opened its doors in January 2007 with thirteen students from the Secondary III and IV levels of Riverdale High School.  The program had been in its development stages since the spring of 2006 when initial meetings were held with representatives of the Réseau québécois des CFER.

Our Program

All CFER businesses are built around some form of recycling. What is recycled varies from CFER to CFER. Some CFER’s recycle paint, others recycle building materials, others recycle rope and so forth. CFER Riverdale is building its project on the recycling of computer systems.

Our Mission

A CFER program has a threefold mandate: Develop autonomous students; produce engaged citizens; train productive workers.

Our History

 

CFER Riverdale opened its doors in January 2007 with thirteen students from the Secondary III and IV levels of Riverdale High School.  The program had been in its development stages since the spring of 2006 when initial meetings were held with representatives of the Réseau québécois des CFER.  Recruitment of students and plans for opening proceeded through the autumn of 2006.  Riverdale’s program was officially recognized by the Réseau in March, 2007. CFER is an acronym for Centre de Formation en Entreprise et Récupération.  A CFER is a self-contained work study project built upon an environmental theme.  There are currently seventeen CFER programs in operation in the province.  Riverdale’s is the first in the Anglophone sector.  The first CFER was opened in Victoriaville in 1990.  Currently, programs exist in all regions of the province including the Outaouais, the Saguenay, Beauce, Trois-Lacs and Memphrémagog.  Each follows the curriculum set out by the Réseau.
