Purpose: This 36-month project will seek to increase the economic prosperity of First Nations women by increasing their participation in skilled trades in Manitoba. At the community level, women leaders will develop an engagement plan and identify and address barriers to employment and training opportunities in skilled trades, such as lack of transportation, family responsibilities, and discrimination. At the provincial level, the project will work with employers and training institutions to adapt education programs and apprenticeships to the needs of Indigenous women. Lessons learned and best practices will be shared with provincial stakeholders and other Indigenous communities.
