Aboriginal Apprenticeship Resources

The Aboriginal Career Trail

The Aboriginal Career Trail (ACT) is a library of employment opportunities, cultural event listings and other information tailored to Mi’kmaq communities in Nova Scotia. The idea for ACT was developed by the Confederacy of Mainland Mi’kmaq to be a portal where members of Mi’kmaq communities can easily connect with, and be matched to, job openings around the province.  Check out ACT's website for more information.

Aboriginal Apprenticeship Advisory Committee

The Aboriginal Apprenticeship Advisory Committee has been established to provide a forum for networking and discussion to identify and address barriers and gaps in trades training and employment opportunities for Aboriginal people. The work of the committee will support the successful participation of Aboriginal people, both on and off reserve, in apprenticeship training and certification in the trades.
