Who Does What in Aboriginal Skills Development: A Reference Document

The goal of this document is to explain the nature of Aboriginal human resources issues in Canada, and to provide practical information for promoting partnerships that lead to meaningful work for Aboriginal people and boost the pool of skilled workers for economic sectors currently experiencing shortfalls.

The authors note that while Canada is one of the fastest growing economies among the G8, a shortfall of skilled workers will make it difficult to sustain that growth. At the same time, Canada is experiencing an Aboriginal baby boom and the unemployment rate among Aboriginal people in Canada is nearly three times the national average.

The authors have included information about Aboriginal populations in Canada; support for Aboriginal human resources; the Aboriginal Human Resource Council; and a variety of agreements pertaining to Aboriginal human resources.

This publication was funded by The Alliance of Sector Councils (TASC), the network of Canada’s sector councils dedicated to implementing industry-driven labour market solutions in key sectors of the economy. For more information about TASC, please visit its website at http://www.councils.org.
