SYDNEY – Membertou resident Angie Doucette is working as a human resources co-ordinator at Membertou First Nation through a program from the Mi’kmaq Employment Training Secretariat.
Doucette, 34, a single mom of three, received funding to study at a local school and is employed through the secretariat’s wage-subsidy program.
“It’s really helpful,” she said.
Doucette is happy to be getting some work experience and is hoping it turns into an ongoing full-time job.
Native employment officers from Nova Scotia’s First Nation communities and the Mi’kmaq Native Friendship Centre gathered in Membertou on Monday for a four-day meeting of the employment training secretariat.
