First Nation Communities Develop Unique Employment Partnership
LETHBRIDGE - First Nation communities from opposite ends of the province are coming together to create employment.
The Blood Tribe are teaming up with the Fort McKay First Nation north of Fort McMurray who are in need of a large work force for a number of upcoming capital projects.
There are 100 members already in the program which offers an 18 day training program for Blood Tribe members on their reserve followed by 70 days of safety and on the job training with Fort McKay First Nation.
It's designed to prepare participants to work in the oilsands region and increase the pool of qualified Aboriginal workers up there.
