Employment & Training (PATHWAYS) Program

Berens River First Nation Employment & Training operates through funds provided under the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Strategy (ASETS) agreement. It was designed to provide funding for Skills & Training as identified by needs of the Community.

Priorities of ASETS Agreement are:
