Collège Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau opened its doors in September 1990 within the
Transcona-Springfield School Division # 12 with a population of 140 students and
14 teachers. Our French Immersion Program has grown and stabilised over time:
Collège Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau currently has 350 students and 20 teachers.
During this time, we have worked to establish programs that include and develop
the diverse talents and skills of our students. In 2006, Collège
Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau was designated a UNESCO school. We are extremely proud of
the reputation our school enjoys in the community and beyond. Our community was
honoured in 2010 when Mr. Justin Trudeau addressed staff, students and guests in
the school that bears his father's name. Our students and staff continue to
reach out to local, national, and international communities to affirm our
identity as a UNESCO school.
Our student population draws from the entire River East Transcona School
Division. Though most students are residents of Transcona, approximately 20 per
cent are residents of the municipality of Springfield and are bused to school
each day. We have an increasing number of students who have chosen our school
under the provincial schools of choice initiative, from Beausejour, Dugald,
Lorette, Oakbank and other divisions within
