FORESTRY TRAINING AND EDUCATION.

LOGGING EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
ABORIGINAL SKILLS EMPLOYMENT & TRAINING SERVICES (ASETS)

The Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) works with aboriginals looking for training and career oppertunities. Aboriginal agreement holders design and deliver employment programs and services best suited to the unique needs of their clients, focusing on the three ASETS priorities:

  • supporting demand-driven skills development;
  • fostering partnerships with the private sector and the provinces 
  • placing emphasis on accountability and results.

ASETS is designed to help Aboriginal people prepare for and find high-demand jobs, as well as keep them in the long term. All Aboriginal people, regardless of status or location, may access its programs and services. For more information on ASETS, visit the federal government’s ASETS webpage.
