The Government of Canada will provide approximately $2.2 million in funding for this project under the Skills Partnership Fund (SPF), which was announced today by Joyce Murray, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Quadra, on behalf of the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour.

The Musqueam 'Breaking the Barriers' Employment Services & Support Program will provide client assessments, essential skills training, job readiness training, vocational training, industry certificate training, and work experience placements that will assist a total of 240 Indigenous participants within the Lower Mainland of BC. Participants will be paired with experienced mentors creating a culture of mentorship in the Musqueam community. This program will promote an enhanced quality of life, as it engages community members in the emerging Musqueam Labour Market.
