Title: Aboriginal Cultural Ambassadors
Organization: Aboriginal Experiences Arts and Culture
City: Across Canada

Read More 

In 2011 Aboriginal Experiences Arts and Culture partnered with OTEC  to create a training program and model to develop the service skills and knowledge of Aboriginal youth and prepare them to become Ambassadors for their culture as well as secure employment in the Aboriginal Cultural Tourism sector. The program and model were aligned to serve the gaps identified in Aboriginal Tourism Ontario’s 2013 strategic plan including, high Aboriginal unemployment, growing tourism sector labour shortages and the growing Canadian Aboriginal Tourism industry.

OTEC was chosen to partner with Aboriginal Experiences due to their expertise in emerit nationally recognized certifications and strategic program development.  Since the program’s inception in 2011 the program and model have been implemented in 5 unique projects across the country and the partnership has now expanded to include a new Ottawa-based Culinary program.

Title: MNO – Navigating Employment Pathways (NEP) Program
Organization: Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO)
City: Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay and Midland

Read More 

Funded in part by the Government of Canada, the Navigating Employment Pathways (NEP) pre-employment program was delivered by the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) in partnership with OTEC, as a sub-contractor providing training curriculum, industry certifications and facilitator support. The NEP program was designed to provide industry specific training to Aboriginal people looking for a career in the tourism and hospitality sector, and was offered in four communities including: Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay and Midland.

Since the launch of the Navigating Employment Pathways program, the MNO has successfully expanded their Education and Training services to include a Metis Mining Strategy which provides support for short-term education, training and work placements for Aboriginal students who are interested in a career in mining. Prior to the NEP program, the MNO had not delivered in-house pre-employment training to Metis clients and have now identified a continued need for “entry-level” workplace training programs to prepare clients for employment.

Title: UPSKILL Project Overview
Organization: Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC)
City: Ontario

Read More 

In partnership with SRDC, the pan-Canadian UPSKILL project was launched in 2010 to measure the impacts of workplace literacy and essential skills (LES) training. Over 100 firms and nearly 1,500 workers in the accommodations sector were enrolled across the country. In Ontario, the project was implemented in partnership with OTEC who was responsible for engaging industry and delivering the LES training program, and research collection and provincial industry performance assessments.

The findings indicate that workplace LES training has a large positive impact on both an organizations’ return on investment and workers’ skills and job performance. Importantly, the study also finds that the pattern of impacts vary significantly across firms in ways that have important implications for the design and delivery of effective training programs. Understanding these factors can lead to policies that support both larger employer investments in workplace training and higher return on investment.
