Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS)

Funded by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) is an integrated approach to Aboriginal labour market programming.  ASETS links training to labour market demand and ensures that Canada’s Aboriginal people can fully participate in economic opportunities.  NWAC is one of two National Aboriginal Organizations who hold ASETS agreements.  NWAC is committed to enhancing and strengthening the economic reality for Aboriginal women, their families and communities across Canada.

Clients

The NWAC ASETS program helps Aboriginal women to fully participate in economic opportunities. NWAC believes that education can help Aboriginal women achieve economic success.  Empowered Aboriginal 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, child care, job starts and other resources that can help Aboriginal women reach their employment and skills training goals.  If you are interested please submit an application to:  mboucher@nwac.ca
