The Indigenous Communities Public Works Pilot (ICPWP) Project is an innovative demand-driven partnership-based approach to workforce development in First Nation communities.
The initiative was designed with the aim of strengthening employment opportunities for unemployed or underemployed Indigenous individuals who are interested in pursuing long-term careers in Public Works.
It offers a career pathway to Indigenous participants that starts with an industry recognized 22-week training program to develop skills and competencies aligned with qualifications for entry level Public Works Technicians. ICPWP also aims to provide Indigenous communities with the local expertise needed to address their public works and community infrastructure needs
