PTAG continues commitment to Diversity & Inclusion by partnering with OCNI and FNPA
PTAG is pleased to be a part of a new local program to increase the number of Indigenous people & Women in skilled trades supporting nuclear life-extension projects. PTAG has committed to an initial two positions, and we look forward to supporting on an ongoing basis the Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) and the First Nations Power Authority (FNPA) with their initiative to recruit, train, and place women and Indigenous people, two traditionally underrepresented groups, into skilled trades.
Both the OCNI and FNPA were awarded a Skills Development Fund grant by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development to recruit, train, and place women and Indigenous people, two traditionally underrepresented groups, into skilled trades positions to support nuclear life-extension projects. This project, Indigenous & Women Skilled Trade Development Pathway to the Nuclear / Clean Energy Sector, will create education and employment opportunities in skilled trades, provide pre-employment soft-skill and hard-skill training, experiential learning experiences, and potential future training opportunities within trade apprenticeships.
