The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) joined the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Trust for the Americas in announcing the Canadian launch of an outstanding digital-skills training initiative for Indigenous Peoples.

The launch event took place today, two days before the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

The announcement of the new POETA (Partnerships for Economic Opportunities through Technology in the Americas) Digispark Canada Project will respond to the economic marginalization of Indigenous Peoples in this country. It responds to the Calls for Justice identified by the Final Report of the National Inquiry’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). It is concrete action.

Canada’s federal government estimates it will soon have 8,000 vacancies in this sector.
