Employment training programs

Two programs exist to create training and work experience projects that lead to employment for Indigenous members:

  • Aboriginal Training to Employment Program (ATEP)
  • First Nations Training to Employment Program (FNTEP)

These programs support the development of partnerships with:

  • First Nation Bands
  • Treaty Councils
  • Tribal Organizations
  • Metis settlements
  • employers
  • Government
  • Indigenous organizations


Participants in ATEP may be Indigenous Albertans not on-reserve (including First Nations members off-reserve and urban Indigenous persons), or Metis on or off settlement.

A minimum of 51% of individuals participating in the FNTEP project must be First Nations members (primarily living on-reserve).
