$30M to boost Métis community

New federal funding announced in Ottawa yesterday will help Aboriginal Peoples in Ontario get the skills they need to find and keep jobs.

The Métis Nation of Ontario will get more than $30 million through the federal Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy, announced Shelly Glover, parliamentary secretary to the minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.

The Métis Nation of Ontario will design and deliver employment programs and services for Aboriginal Peoples in Ontario, helping people secure jobs and aboriginal youth return to school or find work.

“Investing in training is one of the most important measures our government is taking to protect Canada and its workers today, while strengthening the long-term competitiveness of our economy,” Glover said.
