The MTE Program seeks to develop partnerships with industry, government and other Aboriginal organizations. Our goal is to develop and expand existing opportunities for Métis across Alberta.
Partnerships benefit all of us, here are a few examples:
The Métis Health Transition program was designed by the Métis Training to Employment program to assist Métis clients in entering a career in the health field. The partnership involved NAIT who provided the academic upgrading required for entry into health technology programs such as Diagnostic Medical Imaging Sonography, Medical Radiology, and Lab/X T Ray Technology etc. Capital Health contributed work exposure opportunities for clients to experience what the work involved in order to make an informed career choice; while NAIT went on to provide guaranteed entry into these highly competitive programs for those clients successfully completing the Transition program.
