Rural Labour Force Development

Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS)

Through an agreement with the Saskatchewan Indian Training Assessment Group (SITAG) who receives their funding from the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS), the Saskatoon Tribal Council Labour Force Development Program (STC LFD) Unit delivers skills training and labour market programs and services.

ASETS is designed to assist Aboriginal people prepare for and find high-demand jobs quickly, as well as keep them in the long term. Under this strategy, we are able to design and deliver employment programs and services best suited to the unique needs of our clients, based on labour market trends. ASETS focuses on three priorities:

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

The efforts and successes of the STC LFD program is supported by the STC LFD Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee is the governing body to ensure that STC LFD complies with the ASETS Agreement and accomplish the STC LFD goals and objectives. STC LFD Advisory Committee members are appointed representatives from each of the seven member STC First Nations.
