Labour & Employment


About Us

Our Labour and Employment goals align with the Indigenous Skills & Employment Training (ISETS) Objective: “…help close the employment and earning gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, with a stronger focus on training for higher quality, better paying jobs rather than rapid re-employment, as well as assisting clients to gain greater skills and find jobs that will support their long-term career success”… Our members may qualify for funding through a range of these opportunities within all of our departments.

Additional Information

Community members may qualify for a range of funding opportunities such as; skills training, employment skills enhancement, job creation partnerships, labour force promotion, and summer student employment. One site support may include; job searching, resume writing, cover letter writing, interview preparation, and employment counselling.
