Pathway to Work: Increasing Indigenous Community Capacity through Training Innovations (P2W)

Pathway to Work (P2W) is a four-year (2017-2012), multi-phase pilot project funded by Employment and Skills Development Canada (ESDC) and the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES). The project is held through PTP Adult Learning and Employment Programs, a community-based agency that empowers adults to find work they value.

P2W will support the design and implementation of community initiatives for Indigenous adults seeking construction-related employment on large-scale infrastructure projects. Application will result in community initiatives that enable job seekers to build their skills and move into employment through a supportive, seamless process.

The project expects to pilot the training with 100 learners in Manitoba and British Columbia with delivery site staff certified in CAMERA (Communications and Math Employment Readiness Assessment) and ESAT (Employability Skills Assessment Tool). The project will contribute to increase employment prospects in the construction sector.
