SK provides $2M for training Indigenous residents in in-demand skills

November 19, 2021
The Government of Saskatchewan has announced that it will be working with Northern Career Quest Inc to train Indigenous people in northern SK to fill employment needs. SK is providing approximately $2M in funding for one year to provide 400 Indigenous job seekers with industry-led training programs, employability supports, and employment services. Residents of the Prince Albert Grand Council and Meadow Lake Tribal Council regions will also have opportunities to gain training that will help them find or maintain their employment. “We are excited to work with the Government of Saskatchewan on this initiative,” said Northern Career Quest CEO Steve Innes. “This programming expands our previous mandate beyond just the resource sector, enabling us to work with Indigenous folks in more diversified areas of training and employment.” SK (SK)
