Employment Strategy for Red River Métis Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ Youth

IWS is equipping Métis women with the tools they need to find meaningful employment. IWS is the central access point for Métis women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ youth in school to apply for jobs, connect with employers across Manitoba, and for employers to apply for Métis students.

IWS and MET work together to pair bright young Métis women with promising positions every summer with the IWS ‘Summer Student Employment Program.’ Fully funded by MET, Métis students gain employment, training, and mentoring by employers in their Region. Employers gain a fully-funded student.

The Internship Program for post-secondary students to work within IWS, the MMF and its Affiliates during the school year is creating sustainable future staff.
