A Recruit and Retain Webinar by CASP

Supporting Indigenous Youth in the Skilled Trades 

Thursday, March 28, 2024

2-3:30 p.m. ET  / 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. PT

Learn how to cultivate a supportive work environment that fosters the success of Indigenous youth in the skilled trades.

Did you know that the Indigenous population is younger and is growing faster than the non-indigenous population? By embracing their unique strengths, we can contribute to the growth of the skilled trades workforce throughout Canada. 

Indigenous youth bring a wealth of talent and potential to the skilled trades. Understanding and supporting their needs is essential for creating inclusive worksite environments that benefit everyone involved. 

In this enlightening 90-minute session delivered in partnership with AABO (Aboriginal Apprenticeship Board of Ontario), discover how to connect with your local indigenous communities to recruit your next new apprentice. Examine the hurdles that indigenous youth might encounter, and delve into effective strategies to not only recruit/retain them but also mentor them towards a fulfilling career path.
