Aboriginal Employment

  1. Aboriginal Human Resources Development Strategy (AHRDS) is a community-based strategy designed to help Aboriginal people prepare for, obtain and maintain employment. Under this Strategy, Aboriginal organizations design and deliver employment programs and services best suited to meet the unique needs of their communities. The AHRDS is a $1.6 billion initiative launched in 1999 and renewed in 2004 with the same level of funding until March 31, 2009. AHRDS involves 79 First Nations, Inuit and Métis Agreement holders and some 220 sub-agreement holders across the ten provinces and three territories.
  2. Aboriginal Skills and Employment Partnership (ASEP) program is sustainable employment for Aboriginal people in major economic industries, leading to lasting benefits for Aboriginal communities, families, and individuals. It is geared to providing Aboriginal people with the skills they need to participate in economic opportunities such as mining, construction, fisheries, tourism, hydro development, and public infrastructure projects across Canada.
  3. Anishnabeg Outreach extends employment and training services to all eligible Aboriginal people within our catchment area. The catchment area is Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, Cambridge and Wellington County. The goal of Anishnabeg Outreach is to assist Aboriginal individuals in their search for employment, training and education opportunities.
