MSSTI EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
There are a number of employment assistance programs available for Settlement members to take advantage of. For more details, click the link below.
Education Early Learning and Childcare (ELCC): The Metis Settlements receive ELCC funding independently to support local Headstart programs. MSGC is not involved in this process. Most recently however, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) contacted MSGC about additional funds being made available through Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET). In a new 10-year strategy, and through the STI department as the funding vehicle, the Metis Settlements will receive additional IELLCC dollars for the 18-19 and 19-20 fiscal years. MSGC in the meantime will continue negotiating for an increase in this new funding.
Labour Market and Post-Secondary: Strategic Training Initiatives, overall, has consistently filed satisfactory quarter and annual reports during every year of this 3-year term. Effective April 1, 2018, STI received additional funding for the current 10-year agreement. This funding will escalate slightly for 5consecutive years and then stabilize for the remaining 5 years to 2028. Because funding is still determined through the flawed NARAM model and because the increase also used NARAM, overall STI funding remains insufficient. MSGC / STI Board will seek a greater increase through the federal initiatives file.
