Employment

Our goal as Attawapiskat Enterprises is to seek out practical and realistic employment opportunities in the ventures we establish.  Then we can take steps to supplement Attawapiskat First Nation members’ work skills with additional training to match the jobs that result.

  • We held a two-week training program in Attawapiskat for 10 people to learn food preparation and safety standards.  The training program was carried out with support from Collège Boréal and the Province of Ontario.
  • We then launched a second program in co-operation with Collège Boréal, Outland Camps, DeBeers Canada and the Province of Ontario.  A two-year “Cooks Certification” program, it will provide training for at least seven individuals from Attawapiskat and other coastal communities.
  • This process, and working with Outland Camps for on-site training, has resulted in outstanding client satisfaction reports for Attawapiskat Catering personnel working at the Victor Mine operation.
  • We funded Advanced Security to conduct a training program in Attawapiskat for 10 First Nation individuals to prepare them to take formal Ontario Certification testing as security guards.
