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 Mission


Our Program






Wishing to highlight the particular training and recovery program centres (CFER) and to promote the Academic success of its students, the Reseau quebecois des CFER has taken the initiative to organize the Olympiades thanks to the inevitable collaboration of the Youth organization Fondation Reussite Jeunesse, major partner, the Rona Foundation and the CFER’s own development fund.  Inspired by the well known formula, the Olympiades are the culmination of an educational exercise that will take place throughout the school year.  It is a competition that tests the pedagogy and overall learning. It is a provincial initiative.


The objectives of the ‘Olympiades Reussite Jeuness’

  • Provide all students, regardless of the areas in which they excel, the opportunity to compete against their peers

  • Provide students with the opportunity to be at the centre of their interests

  • To encourage students to engage in their own education, since it will be tested against their peers

  • Promote teamwork and collective motivation

  • Develop young people’s sense of belonging, self-confidence and pride

  • Encourage the involvement of all CFER staff in their preparation and implementation of their activities

  • Recruit mentors in each area and each region to become the evaluators of the manual and oral expression activities

2011 - 2012
