Aboriginal Contract Readiness Training Workshops


These workshops were funded by First Nations Economic Partnership Initiative (FNEPI).  FNEPI contributed $50,000 towards the Aboriginal Contract Readiness Training Workshops.  This project was delivered in collaboration with the Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations, Enbridge Pipelines, Alberta Aboriginal Relations, Alberta Employment and Immigration, and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. 


The business development workshops were designed to provide skills and knowledge tools needed to maximize future contracting opportunities in Alberta’s oil and gas industry.  Ninety-five Aboriginal people participated in these workshops.
