Apple and other new partners meet at the Conference on Mobile Applications in 
support of new initiatives 
MONTREAL, March 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Apple has announced its participation 
in the Conference on Mobile applications being held at Cégep Gérald-Godin, 
on April 17(th). This announcement comes as other diffusion partners have also 
come on board: The Quebec Association of IT Freelancers (AQIII), The West 
Island of Montreal Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Canadian Association of 
Community Colleges. 
Caroline De Guire, director of the AQIII, says she is excited by the 
challenge: "The fact that Cégep Gérald-Godin is organising a contest for 
mobile applications, sends a strong message," she said, "We will spread the 
news. We will also participate in the conference and present the tools which 
are available through the AQIII, to help our young people become entrepreneurs 
in the field of information technology." 
Collège Boréal, in Ontario, uses iPads in many of its programs. Denis-Hubert 
Dutrisac, the college president, will present during the conference, the 
pedagogical applications used by this avant-garde school. "We have a special 
arrangement with Apple. Collège Boréal is one of the biggest users of 
mobile technology for pedagogical purposes in Canada", Mr.Dutrisac 
explained. 
According to Joseph Huza, Director of the West Island of Montreal Chamber of 
Commerce, he is pleased to invite members to the Conference's closing cocktail 
at which time the winners of the mobile application contest will be 
revealed. "This is an opportunity for the WICC to increase its presence 
among francophones", he told us. 
On April 17(th), Cégep Gérald-Godin will welcome, in its magnificent 
setting, representatives from over twenty colleges, school boards and 
universities, as well as several companies and organisations, for this ACCC 
supported initiative. "We are doing this for the next generation, to 
introduce our students to the organisations with whom the will be interacting 
in the future", declared Christian Roy, director general of Cégep 
Gérald-Godin. "Strength lies in knowing that the interest runs both ways. 
Employers, also, want to get to know the future generation." The commitment of 
our partners shows just how important this issue truly is. To find out more,
