About Our Initiatives
Building and growing our communities is an ongoing project – one that will never be complete. We constantly strive to provide opportunities, programs, and services to our Metis Settlement Members that will improve their quality of life and the quality of life in the Settlements. To that end, we have a number of ongoing initiatives at MSGC. They vary from employment training to climate leadership and provide unique opportunities for our communities.
Feel free to view each initiatives webpage for more details.
Strategic Training Initiatives
The Metis Settlements Strategic Training Initiatives (‘MSSTI’) is a society formed by the Metis Settlements to provide training and educational opportunities to Metis Settlement Members. MSSTI assist our Members with entering or re-entering the workforce, retaining active employment, or enhancing their skills to advance in their chosen profession. Our top priority is to ensure that Settlement Members have meaningful opportunities for employment.
Climate Change Initiatives
Through a Government of Alberta grant the Metis Settlements General Council (MSGC) has hired a Climate Change Coordinator to work on Settlement-specific strategies. The goal of the MSGC Climate Change Initiative is to offer support, raise awareness and create OUR PLAN, an approach specific to us. This initiative will also help to identify how we can contribute to reducing our carbon footprint and become more environmentally responsible.
