The NWAC ISET program helps Indigenous women and gender-diverse individuals to fully participate in economic opportunities. NWAC believes that education can help Indigenous women achieve economic success. Empowered Indigenous women are the foundation for strong families and communities.
Through NWAC’s agreement with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) we are able to provide supports such as tuition, living allowance, childcare, job starts and other resources that can help Indigenous women reach their employment and skills training goals.
Eligible clients are Indigenous women, trans-gender, two-spirited and gender diverse (First Nation, Inuit and Metis) who are 15 years of age or older. Individuals seeking funding must be unemployed, under-employed or able to demonstrate an immediate risk of being unemployed.
