What is NETS?

Nak’azdli Employment & Training Services (NETS) provides training programs towards employment for Nak’azdli members. NETS encourages participants to exercise self-determination in their territory in ways that reflect their philosophy, values and experience.

NETS participants earn qualifications toward economic self-sufficiency and realize their potential to contribute to their Nation, other First Nations, and society at large. NETS provides pre-employment counseling, on the job training and/or course purchase.

Our focus is on skills development training opportunities for unemployed and under employed clients as well as those on Social Assistance and EI eligible individuals. We provide career development exercises, action plan referrals and work experience.
