(Unceded territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, Prince George, B.C. – March 3, 2021) — Carrier Sekani Tribal Council is doubling its intake for an employment training program aimed at unemployed and underemployed Indigenous members looking to find employment in the regional pipeline and construction industry.
After an overwhelming response from applicants to the initial call for students, the BC Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training offered to double the funding so that CSTC could increase the number of students enrolled from 15 to 30 people.
The training provided by Indigenous Communities for Leadership and Development (ICLD) includes an eight-week course with opportunities to earn tickets required to work in the field, followed by eight weeks of job coaching, including opportunities to directly connect trainees with potential employers.
Registrants who have been selected for the program will be contacted directly.
