Aboriginal communities have proven experience and success in investment partnership opportunities.

Aboriginal Environmental Services Network
Looking for information on training, technology, and resources related to supporting Indigenous involvement in the Environmental Services sector? Look no further than the Aboriginal Environmental Services Network (AESN) website!

Northeast Alberta Apprenticeship Initiative
The Government of Alberta recognizes the opportunity First Nations and Métis community populations represent for the regional labour force. As such, the Northeast Alberta Apprenticeship Initiative (NEAAI) was launched in collaboration with industry and the Tribal Chiefs Employment and Training Services Association.
The NEAAI is a First Nation-driven project and is designed to provide Aboriginal people with essential skills training, trades preparation, jobs, entry into apprenticeship programs, trade certification and the opportunity to address labour challenges in the province.
