Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) - Indigenous Student Funding
The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) provides assistance and funding for training and skills development to Aboriginal Peoples living off-reserve. Through the Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) program, the program is designed to help Aboriginal Peoples prepare for, and find high-demand jobs that will help address Canada’s labour market challenges. Funded through Employment and Social Development Canada, CAP’s employment programs and services provide Aboriginal Peoples the opportunity to gain the skills required to find employment and fill job gaps in sectors experiencing skills and labour shortages. The ISET program is targeted to Aboriginal Peoples living in urban, rural and remote areas throughout Canada. Those eligible to apply include Aboriginal youth, women, single parents, mature workers, persons with disabilities and those experiencing career change or transition.
