In the spring of 2018, discussions with Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S) officials—President Glen McCallum, Education Minister Earl Cook, and CEO Richard Quintal—resulted in good news for Métis labour market programs and services in Saskatchewan. The MN–S formalized their commitment to have the Métis Nation’s training arm, the Gabriel Dumont Institute, deliver labour market services for Saskatchewan Métis. The decision secures stability and continuity for these services to the Métis. Since 2006, when GDI started delivering Métis employment and training services, thousands of Métis citizens have accessed jobs, apprenticeships, and funding for training. Maarsii to the MN–S for helping Métis people access opportunities and improve our lives and our community.
