The Government of Saskatchewan has announced one-time funding of $532,000 to provide training support for Indigenous job seekers to develop the skills they need to enter the hospitality and tourism sector.
The Hospitality and Tourism program is in response to labour needs and aims to improve the employment rate of Indigenous people in the Saskatchewan workforce. The funding will support approximately 100 Indigenous job seekers to increase their skills to enter or advance their employment in the hospitality and tourism sector.
“Hospitality and tourism showcase our rich culture, history, and traditions and are further enriched by Indigenous participation,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “The Hospitality and Tourism program will help to improve the participation of Indigenous people in our provincial economy and provide a skilled workforce to help drive Saskatchewan’s economic growth.”
