Government of Canada To Help Aboriginal People Improve Skills and Find Jobs

Mr. Brian Jean, Member of Parliament for Fort McMurray-Athabasca, made an announcement on October 25th, 2010 about assisting Aboriginal people getting the skills they need to find and keep jobs, as the result of a Government of Canada funded project. The Bigstone Cree Nation , located in Alberta, will receive support to continue projects that design and deliver job-related programs and services for Aboriginal people who live in Alberta. Many Aboriginal people are expected to be placed in jobs over the duration of the projects and Aboriginal youth will get help to return to school or to find full-time employment. The projects will also create strong partnerships between government, industry, educational and training institutions, and community service providers.
