November 17, 2021
The Government of Ontario is investing over $3.7M to provide career training to members of Treaty #3 First Nations communities. 110 people will receive training so that they can work in a variety of professions, including heavy equipment operators, general construction workers, and concrete workers. People who are unemployed, underemployed, or whose jobs are at risk will be given priority for the program. “Today’s investment will give First Nations people in Northern Ontario the training and skills they need to open the door to these meaningful career opportunities, helping build better lives for themselves and their loved ones,” said ON Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development Monte McNaughton.
