Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training

Aboriginal Skills & Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) is designed to assist Aboriginal women with skills development and training needs. The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) operates this program through an agreement with the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) and Human Resources Skills Development Canada (HRSDC.) The goal of the ASETS Program is to assist you with career counselling and labour market information.

The ASETS Program takes a labour market driven approach so all training initiatives will be refl ective of labour market needs in your community. Training must be reflective of employment opportunities in your area. Training initiatives are approved based on availability of funding, individual eligibility and labour market needs.
