Labour Market Group to host Employers’ Learning LodgeMonday, September 30, 2013 by: Kate AdamsLabour Market Group
The Labour Market Group in partnership with the North Bay Indian Friendship Centre’s Community Action Circle, YES! Employment Services, the North Bay Chamber of Commerce, the North Bay and District Multicultural Centre, and the Business Centre - Nipissing Parry Sound is pleased to announce a breakfast information session for employers on Aboriginal Specific Funding Opportunities.
This complimentary information breakfast will be held at the North Bay Indian Friendship Centre, 980 Cassells Street on Wednesday October 2nd starting at 7:30am.
“This is an excellent opportunity for business managers and their human resources departments to gain invaluable knowledge on how and where to tap into Aboriginal specific funding opportunities and expand their workforce utilizing skilled Aboriginal workers to address their workforce shortages” says the LMG’s Executive Assistant, Andrea Stoppa. “Not only will there be a keynote speaker from the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs, but there will also be numerous information booths set up to address specific questions and concerns people may have”.
Patty Chabbert, Lead Researcher with Urban Aboriginal Communities Thrive (U-ACT) states that “this forum is more than funding opportunities; it is also about creating and strengthening partnerships with Aboriginal organizations and First Nations communities. We have a wide range of opportunities being presented, including the Aboriginal Affairs New Relationship Fund which provides up to $100,000 to help First Nations and Métis communities consult and engage with governments and the private sector organizations in our North Bay community on land and resource issues”.
The Labour Market Group is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and is part of the Employment Ontario Network.
