Funded Training Programs:

Summer Student Program:

High school and post-secondary students have an opportunity to create their own summer job through this program.  The intention is for students to be able to seek out work experience that applies to their career goals; giving students a chance to experience directly the occupations and industries that they are interested in pursuing.


This initiative provides Aboriginal youth ages 15-30 with short-term training opportunities to achieve employment.  Our current programs are client centered to meet the individual needs and goals of the youth.  We are limited in yearly seats, so come in or call to speak with our Training Coordinator to get started.  Lisa Luscombe ( Phone: 250-489-2464.
