We partner with Aboriginal groups and industry to build workforce development capacity and success for Aboriginal communities. Aboriginal people who participate in our training initiatives have greater chances of succeeding in technical training and on-the-job in construction and mining-related occupations. Investing in the future of the Aboriginal workforce means improved skills, job readiness, performance, and retention.
Our commitment is to develop training partnerships that align with both Aboriginal Group(s) and respective company(s) resulting in a more productive, safe and successful Aboriginal worker. Examples:
We work with Aboriginal Group(s) and respective company(s) to:
Develop culturally relevant products and deliver training services that prepare Aboriginals for technical training and workplace success.
Build capacity in Aboriginal communities to deliver training services.
Assess Essential Skills to pinpoint skill levels and establish training objectives that meet industry requirements.
Design and set up training centres within Aboriginal communities and/or job sites.
