National Indigenous Peoples Day 2019

June 21, 2019

Manitoba Building Trades acknowledges that our offices and work sites are located on Treaty 1 land, the traditional territories of the Cree, Dakota, Dene, Ojibway and Oji-Cree First Nations, as well as the Metis nation.  

June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day – a day where we can come together and honour the cultural diversity, rich heritage and significant achievements of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis Peoples across Canada.  

National Indigenous Peoples Day is also a time for Canadians to acknowledge and reflect upon the sacrifices of Indigenous Peoples throughout history, and to continue to work together towards a spirit of reconciliation. 

Manitoba Building Trades celebrates the diversity of our union members, and actively works to invest in the skills of Indigenous building trades workers by connecting job seekers to local, large scale construction projects. 

We have partnered with Pathways to Work to deliver essential skills training in Manitoba First Nations. The Communications and Math Employment Readiness Assessment (CAMERA) program is designed to help connect indigenous job seekers to local jobs on large-scale projects in up to three Manitoba communities.  

With many other partnerships and proposals underway, Manitoba Building Trades is proud to grow our commitment to Indigenous communities, skilled trades professionals and apprentices.
