First Nations Forestry Training

Description

The First Nations Forestry Training Program (FNFTP) is the training component of the Workforce Initiative. It is designed to match students with sponsoring companies and provide individually structured training that reflects the operations of their sponsoring company. The result is both employment with the company and recognized or accredited education for the student, all of which will help fill the labour needs within the industry.

The program provides assistance with payment of tuition, living allowance, books/supplies, work gear, etc. for the education component. 

The FNFTP has had ten students enrolled in the program over each of the last three years. The program partner BC Timber Sales (BCTS) has provided invaluable mentorship for students in their summer employment portion of the program.
