Are you Aboriginal and between the ages of 15 and 30? If you are, then you are a member of a fast growing group that is very important to Canada's future!
Aboriginal youth will play a very important part in filling many, many jobs left vacant when older people retire. And to do this, you need skills!
Urban and off-reserve Aboriginal youth are targeted by such programs under Youth Service Canada and Youth Internship Canada, up to an amount of $11.1 million Youth Employment Strategy.
