To All Stakeholders and Sponsor Agencies:
Miziwe Biik Aboriginal Employment and Training is excited to announce the new upcoming, Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) Program starting April 03, 2019. Presently, the Terms and Conditions along with budgets of ISET are being developed by the Government of Canada, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC). In anticipation of a new ISET agreement Miziwe Biik is preparing for the Urban Labour Market Program by issuing the first round of a Call for Proposals (to be rolled out at the information session November 29, 2018), closing January 15, 2019, at 12 PM (noon).
The Board of Directors is encouraging, but not limited to, training projects that address emerging employment trends such as: Technology-based training, Management training, Project Management training, Economic development, Cultural programs and Summer student job opportunities. Proposals will be accepted throughout the year, on an ongoing basis and assessed and accepted by the Board of Directors based on merit and availability of funds.
No decisions will be communicated regarding submissions until Miziwe Biik receives a signed agreement for the new ISET funding.
