Indigenous Works

Join Indigenous Works in a two-day training workshop, along with a few follow up sessions.  The theme of the workshop is 'Indigenous Works Employer of Choice Certification Program' and the training focuses on the role of certification Auditors who will learn the theory, principles and structure of the program and how to deliver it to employers in your region.  This will help ensure there will be more employers committed to ongoing and continuous improvement of their Indigenous employment and workplace inclusion goals.

Labour Market Information and Skills Inventory Survey

Online training will be provided to the Employment Advisors, to ensure the successful delivery of the next phased (in-person or online or phone-in) implementation of the existing comprehensive Community Skills Inventory and Labor Market Study.

On-reserve Labor Market Information (LMI) is key to taking control of program design, service delivery and decision-making in First Nations employment offices such as AETS.  There is somewhat of a shortage of data pertaining to skills and training needs, employment experiences, and educational and skill profiles of Anishinabek citizens.  The key objective of the LMI Project is to improve labour market information by supporting First Nations communities in their labour market planning and service delivery. 

AETS and the respective nine First Nation Communities, will use the information collected to understand the needs of the communities and paint a picture of their economic states. This is all being done while ensuring that all personal information remains secure and belongs to the applicable First Nation.  Approval and input from First Nation leadership has been obtained to ensure that AETS is capturing information relevant to the community allowing for this survey.  AETS looks forward to each of its nine member community’s participation in the Labour Market Information Pilot Project, and for involvement to evolve the project in the way that best services the community.
