Federal funding to provide assessment, training.
Meadow Lake Tribal Council will receive $537,928 in federal dollars for training and skills development. The Meadow Lake Tribal Council's Foundations for Action project will assess 1,200 First Nations social assistance clients to determine their skills, education, and employment barriers. Following these initial assessments, over 950 clients will create action plans to enhance their job skills through additional training and employment support. "The Meadow Lake Tribal Council is proud to be a part of Foundations for Action as it will bring much-needed training and employment opportunities to Aboriginal people in the communities," said Tribal Chief Eric Sylvestre, in a news release. "We look forward to developing the skilled work force that is in such demand in our region." Federal support of $537,928 for this project is provided through the Skills and Partnership Fund, while $100,000 comes from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.
