Danielle Hetu - Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Thanks to the help of the Red Deer Métis Employment Services I have completed my Bachelor of Sciences in Nursing. They helped me with my tuition and books for the last year of my program. I feel that with their help I was able to focus on my studies and my family throughout the last year of schooling, without the stress of worrying about finances. After completing my program, I was able to get a job at the Red Deer Regional Hospital as a Registered Nurse. I would like to thank the Métis Employment Services team for all the help and support they have given me throughout my studies. I truly believe that I would not be where I am today had I not received the help that they gave me.


Nicholas Myshaniuk - Diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology

On behalf of myself, Nicholas Myshaniuk, I’d like to thank the Métis Nation of Alberta for their time and help in perusing my dream. I have recently graduated from NAIT on the Dean’s Honour Roll with a diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology.
Your help made this goal much easier to achieve. Without all your help these dreams would not have been even considered, so I’d like to express my thanks to the Métis Nation of Alberta as a whole and to the Region 2 Office in Bonnyville. Thanks for giving me the help and encouragement I needed.


Angela Perreault - Chemical Technologist

My name is Angela Perreault and I am a current graduate from the Chemical Technology program that was offered at NAIT. With the help of the Métis Nation of Alberta I was able to complete my final year of studies and further my career in the oil/gas industry as well as forensics. I have recently found employment with a company called "Gibson Energy". I am very proud of what the Métis Nation of Alberta did for me to help reach my goals and make my dreams a reality. Thank you for everything!


Pam Kehler - Bachelor of Management

Without the Métis Nation of Alberta and Métis Employment services, the final year of my Bachelor of Management degree would not have been the great success that it was. I am forever grateful for their assistance. I can not express the difference it has made in my life. I now have the education and support that will allow me to achieve my dreams and I look forward to a bright and successful future.
I have now returned to my previous employer in the service industry, and am striving for an upper management position.


Travis Davies - Bachelor of Science, Geographical Information Systems

With the assistance of the Peace River Métis Employment Services and Métis Training to Employment, I have successfully graduated from the University of Lethbridge with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Geography with a concentration in Geographical Information Systems. I am proud, and very grateful, of what the Métis Nation of Alberta has done for me to help me make my goal of obtaining a university degree a reality. Thank you so very much for all the help you have provided.
