Mandate and context
With the Gaspésie et les Îles experiencing a significant demographic decline, the future of the CEGEP in their region is uncertain. The institution must implement new strategies to ensure its sustainability and increase its student population, building on the unique aspects of its offerings, including the Quebec School of Fisheries and Aquaculture.
Implementation and solutions
After conducting a large consultation in 4 campuses of the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles (300 members of the staff and the student body), IdéesFX created a detailed report that drew up several findings and a list of strategic actions to be undertaken. The firm accompanied the CEGEP's management for 18 months to implement the proposed solutions.
Impact and outcomes
The results and proposals of IdéesFX served as the basis for the creation of a 2023-2028 strategic plan, which allows the CEGEP to project itself into the future. The institution has taken several steps to build on its unique characteristics (fisheries, sustainable development, outdoors, renewable energy) and launched a success plan adapted to Generation Z.
