Métis Employment Services

MTE programs and services are delivered to clients through ten full-time Métis Employment Services (MES) sites located throughout Alberta. Our busy staff also provide itinerant services on a part-time basis to other communities where numbers warrant, and through our Mobile MES RV.

The MES staff complement consists of Employment Counsellors and Client Resource Assistants with a larger staff component in the urban areas of Edmonton and Calgary, and oversight of MES operations at the Regional level by Client Services Managers and Assistant Managers. A wide range of employment programs and clients services is offered at each MES site.

Métis Employment Services offers a comprehensive range of services to the Métis Community including intake to MTE programs and assistance through the application process for financial support. Other services include:

Looking for a job? Employers advertise job openings at our MES centres. We can help you to apply for these jobs and provide assistance with resume writing, interview tips, and helping you sell your hidden, marketable talents. Employment tools (computers with internet access, job postings and resources) are waiting for you.

Our Employment Counsellors help you think systematically about your future and the education that is necessary to achieve an occupational goal.

MES staff build relationships with agencies and institutions in the community to support the needs of our clients. We can help you develop a network of supports and find out about the agencies that are waiting to help you succeed.

You can access a wealth of information on training offered at educational institutions, view information about occupations, or take home a pamphlet full of job hunting or career tips.

Métis Employment Services will be bringing our MTE Programs closer to you!
