About the Indigenous Skills and Employment Training Program
The Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) Program is designed to help Indigenous people improve their skills and find employment.
In 2016 and 2017, we engaged with key Indigenous partners and organizations across the country to review and renew the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS). The ISET Program is a result of these engagements.
The ISET Program builds on what was successful about ASETS and reflects what was heard from Indigenous partners to include:
- a co-developed program with Indigenous partners;
- increased funding;
- greater flexibility for organizations to design programming to meet the needs of their people and communities; and
- a new distinctions-based strategy that recognizes, respects and reflects Canada’s Indigenous peoples, specifically the First Nations, Métis and Inuit, but also addresses urban/non-affiliated service delivery needs.
Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) Program service delivery organizations
The ISET Program provides funding to Indigenous service delivery organizations that design and deliver job training services to First Nations, Inuit, Métis and urban/non affiliated Indigenous people in their communities.
Indigenous service delivery organizations can be found across Canada.
