The BC Métis Federation has signed a new Partnership Agreement with The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA!).
The Agreement commits partners to shared goals for training and employment opportunities for Métis in British Columbia and increasing the number of Métis in trades across the province. The latest data from the Industry Training Authority reveals that the LiUNA Training PLUS (Professional Labourers’ Union School) is the fourth largest sponsor of Indigenous apprentices in B.C. in its category. Training PLUS has 47% Indigenous apprentices, which is the highest proportion in the BC Building Trades.
