About the Program
The main goal of PCFN E&T is to prepare band members for employment by providing support for short-term training or education. Funding support may be provided for short-term work experience, career exploration, job start-up, and employer wage subsidy (i.e. employment insurance, income assistance), training or education programs less than one year in duration. Please contact the Employment & Training personnel if you are not sure whether you may qualify for this program.
PCFN E&T entered an agreement with the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy Canada (ASETS) through First Peoples Development Inc. which has been developed to reduce federal employment insurance costs whereby assisting Aboriginal people to become gainfully employed. PCFN E&T is monitored on a monthly basis and the current operating funding agreement will end March 31, 2018.
AS PCFN E&T nears the end of the funding agreement, an evaluation and federal budget consideration will take place to determine whether continued support of the program may occur.
