Skills training, work & scholarships
How we help Indigenous People develop skills, get work
We support the recruitment and development of Indigenous employees in a variety of ways, from employment skills upgrading programs, to apprenticeship and co-op opportunities, to a youth work experience program.
These programs are designed to help Indigenous People learn about our work environment and gain first-hand experience to get started on a path towards a career they're interested in.
Our Northern Indigenous Employment and Training Specialist Sharon McLeod shares her passion for helping Indigenous candidates develop their skills so they can identify opportunities with BC Hydro.
Here are a few links to stories about skill development and work opportunities:
