Economic Development and Employment; A Priority for the Future of our Youth
Conscious of the importance of providing employment for Natives living off-reserves, Corporation Waskahegen invests a lot of energy to meet its economical development mission in order to generate creative initiatives of wealth for this community.
Recent studies on native populations living off-reserves have revealed a 2.8 % increase rate which is 40 % higher than the one of the national non-Native population. Already 50 % of the Native population is 25 years old of age explaining the urgency to invest greater efforts in economic development.
Corporation Waskahegen is determined to make sure its clientele has access to all the services to which it is entitled; to that end, it has established relations with the economic development organizations already in place.
