British Columbia 

The Métis Nation British Columbia administers the Métis Employment & Training Program (METP) to improve the employment potential, earning capacity and self-sufficiency of Métis people in British Columbia.



Rupertsland Institute (RLI)  is signatory to a 4.5 year ASETS agreement (Aboriginal Skills, Employment, and Training Strategy) with the federal government. The RLI ASETS agreement is one of the largest in the country in terms of scope and funding, extending throughout the whole province of Alberta.

  •  Mobile MTES  brings services to Métis in remote areas of the province.


Gabriel Dumont Institute Training and Employment was established in 2006 to assist Saskatchewan’s Métis looking to improve their educational and employment outcomes.

Funding for GDI Training and Employment programs is provided through the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy.

In 2010, GDI signed the new ASETS for a five-year term, and continues to empower the Métis people of Saskatchewan by improving their educational and employment futures.

ASETS focuses on three main priorities:

  • Support for demand-driven skills development;
  • Fostering partnerships with the private sector and the provinces and territories; and
  • Placing emphasis on accountability and results.

Under this strategy, Aboriginal agreement holders design and deliver employment-based programs and services best suited to the unique needs of their clients.
