Province Invests in Construction Careers Regina

Released on September 30, 2015

The Government of Saskatchewan was pleased to join the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (SIIT) today to announce a $566,996 investment in the Construction Careers Regina program.

The program provides First Nations and Métis people with an opportunity to obtain the skills, certifications and experience needed to gain employment in the construction and industrial sectors.  More than 600 participants will access the program in Regina this year.

“We are proud to partner with SIIT to deliver the Construction Careers program in Regina, and in seven other locations across the province,” Minister responsible for Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Jeremy Harrison said.  “These programs are an excellent resource to get more First Nations and Métis people the training they need for rewarding in-demand careers.”

In total, the Government of Saskatchewan committed nearly $3 million to the eight Construction Careers programs in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, Meadow Lake, North Battleford, Yorkton, Creighton and La Ronge.

“Since SIIT began running these centres 17 years ago, we have helped enhance employability and employment for thousands of First Nations and Métis people, ultimately getting more people into the labour market, and filling the employers’ high demand for skilled workers,” Construction Careers Regina Project Manager Mark Gettle said.  “The continued support from the Government of Saskatchewan will allow us to continue helping many more people as they work toward bettering their quality of life of themselves and their families.”

The Construction Careers programs will be accessed by approximately 3,125 people in 2015-16.
