  • Providing one-on-one job development assistance in securing employment opportunities for Matawa First Nations members which includes resume/cover letter assistance, job search strategies, employment readiness assessments, matching participants with employers/First Nations’ job opportunities, and database matching/tracking systems.
  • Seeking employment agreements with KKETS, Matawa First Nations and employers.
  • Providing cultural sensitivity awareness to employers through educating and access to Elder supports, guiding, mentoring and monitoring activities.

The Goal

It is our goal to build community capacity and increase Matawa First Nations’ members’ participation in the current labor market workforce and local economy. Employment opportunities through the Employment Integration Services Program (EISP) which will enable the participants to compete in the labour xqmarket

Through the EISP, clientele that have completed skilled trades training through KKETS and/or obtained their grade 12 high school diploma through the Aboriginal Skills Advancement Program will have an opportunity to develop their skills and obtain relevant career-related work experience in high demand occupations. EISP will work with the participants, employers and First Nations addressing the employment barriers and reaching the goal of securing employment for Matawa First Nation members.

The Mamaw-Kush-Ki-Ho-Win: Matawa Aboriginal Skilled Workers Association (hereinafter MASWA) is an initiative from KKETS which will assist our Aboriginal participants and skilled workers in Northern Ontario. MNASW provides our participants and skilled workers an opportunity to be competitive and assume a greater role in the Northern Ontario labor market. The plan is to develop and organize a Workers Association that will put our Aboriginal participants and skilled workers in an advantageous position and compete for skilled labor jobs. MASWA will manage, supervise and monitor apprenticeships that will ultimately lead to the elusive Red Seal.
