Employment Strategy for
IWS, in collaboration with the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF), is strategizing to equip female Metis youth with the tools they need to find meaningful employment during the COVID-19 Pandemic. As a part of the MMF’s proactive approach in dealing with the financial crisis, IWS will work in collaboration with the seven MMF Regions to place at least seven Summer Students in their MMF Locals for summer employment.
As a part of the “Employment Strategy for Metis Women,” IWS will become a Referral Unit for female Metis youth and women in Manitoba to assist them in finding employment. IWS will become the central point of access for women to apply for summer employment. Applicants will send their resumes and cover letters directly to IWS (IWS@mmf.mb.ca) for submission to the IWS Employment Database. IWS will also be a point of contact for organizations, businesses, and partners who are looking to recruit female Metis youth for employment. IWS Summer Student Coordinator will match potential applicants with prospective employers.
If you or anyone you know is interested, please call IWS at (204) 586-8474 ext. 321 or 326.
