Aboriginals in Trades Training
Aboriginals in Trades Training (AITT) is geared towards helping employers in BC get the skilled workers they need by matching them up with aboriginals who have some experience, or who want to start a career, in the trades. The AITT initiative connects aboriginals with the training they may need to start out in the industry.
AITT is currently funded through the Industry Training Authority of BC’s Aboriginals in Trades Training initiative. This is a Canada – BC Labour Market Agreement funded program targeted towards aboriginals who are non EI clients or employed in low skilled positions and lack certification, high school diplomas, or essential skills.
AITT works with aboriginals who have an interest in entering the Skilled Trades as well as those already working in Skilled Trades who may need support or guidance in furthering their careers.
If you are currently unemployed or underemployed, you may qualify for this initiative. Find out more about this program by contacting a Trades Employment Specialist in your area.
Initiative funding provided by the Industry Training Authority (ITA), through the Canada – BC Labour Market Agreement between the Governments of Canada and British Columbia.
