Toolkit: Indigenous Women and Non-Traditional Occupations
Fuelled by a series of consultations with Indigenous women, educational institutions and employers, this toolkit for Indigenous women in non-traditional occupations aims to provide:
- Information needed to guide women through the various stages of their journey towards a non-traditional occupation;
- Practical advice to educational institutions at all levels (collegial, vocational, university) in relation to access to training, academic success and the employment integration of women in non-traditional occupations;
- Useful information to facilitate the recruitment of women in companies that offer traditionally male jobs.
This toolkit aims to facilitate successful training and increase the recruitment and retention of Indigenous women in non-traditional occupations.
In addition, the FNQLEDC provides individual accompaniment to women who start a business or grow.
If you have any questions about women entrepreneurship, do not hesitate to contact Emmanuel Bertrand-Gauvin by email or phone at 418-843-1488, ext. 1227.
