Roy Osmond with Colleen Arnold, General Meeting May 24, 2022
Regional Coordinator for Metis Employment and Training with the Manitoba Metis Federation The Pas Roy Osmond spoke on services available at their Flin Flon sub office. He noted they have programs dealing with job opportunities, training, student employment and career counseling emphasizing a job opportunities subsidy and targeted wage subsidy.
“We want to be a partner, we want to help you get them trained so we always say the job opportunities subsidy is to get someone with multiple barriers the skills they need so they can move on after six months and hopefully find a job elsewhere. The targeted wage subsidy is a little more restricted. Our contribution would be higher but we would expect the employer to commit to hiring the person at the end of the program.”
Osmond adds he also expects to have about 33 summer students working in this area.
For information on the many jobs related and other support programs available contact the Manitoba Metis Federation sub office on Main Street and they will refer you to the appropriate person.
