Employment & Training Programs
Since its inception, the Department has fostered the employability of the region’s labour force by developing and implementing small and large training activities that reflect the needs of residents as well as areas of economic and social development. To keep abreast of this field, the Department promotes forums such as the Kativik Regional Employment and Training Committee (KRETC) and the First Nations and Inuit Advisory Committee on Labour Markets.
The Department’s programs seek to stimulate labour training, student summer employment, and full-time job creation, while also supporting activities that encourage high school students to continue their studies and that foster employability through traditional skills. Target clientele include youth, income-security recipients, unemployed individuals, persons with disabilities, as well as Employment Insurance recipients.
