INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYERS


 

 

About Us

Many employers would like to hire Aboriginal workers but do not know how to successfully engage with Calgary's
Aboriginal community.

We are your point of contact for Aboriginal job seekers.

We are a labour market intermediary. We help improve the
flow of labour market information by acting as a broker
between Aboriginal job seekers and local employers looking for
Aboriginal employees.

Founded in 2000, we have a trusted relationship with the
Aboriginal population in Calgary and the surrounding area.

We may sound like a placement agency...
but we aren't.

We work on both sides of the labor market, evaluating changing labour market needs while also assessing the skills and interests of job seekers.

Unlike placement agencies, we put considerable emphasis on placement supports and services that can encourage job retention.

Additionally, our services are free of charge.


How are we different?

Whereas other service providers may offer Aboriginal
employment assistance as one component of their
services, we devote 100 percent of our services to
help Aboriginal individuals obtain meaningful employment.

We provide a comprehensive range of supports that can
help increase employee retention, lower recruitment costs
and reduce training expenses. We also offer a number of
programs and funding options that can save you money.

"When working with Aboriginal Futures we can always count on a career counselor
to provide ongoing support to both employer and employee.
This has proven to be a valuable service and has enabled us to increase employee retention.
