The Alberta Indigenous Construction Career Centres is an exciting initiative to connect Indigenous workers with Alberta employers recruiting for construction-related careers.
Our services will create Indigenous skills development and employment, and assist Alberta business and industry with key human resource objectives. It responds with a business solution to address Alberta’s growth and skilled workforce shortages by engaging the resources of our Indigenous population in urban and rural communities through career development/training and Indigenous employment opportunities to support economic development.
Employers will benefit from an increased pool of employees that aspire for additional training to enhance their careers within the trades; building towards their red seal apprenticeships. Strengthening communities through education or the “trades route” may allow more people to work closer to home and their families acting as role models for the future generations. This will produce more individuals on the ground working, learning, and developing their skills to become year one and two apprenticeships.
