The FPS is a contribution-based programme. Aboriginal organisations, including those not currently holding the ASETS contract, may apply for funding following a call for proposals. According to James Sutherland, Executive Director of the ESDC Aboriginal Directorate, there have been three calls for proposals to date. The first two were largely funded up to $3 million and the third targeted specific projects in the raw material extraction industry. The first two calls for proposals have led to the implementation of numerous qualification and training programmes in small and medium-sized enterprises. The last call for proposals not only targeted sectors with high labour demand, but also required contributions from partners, for example.B. the private sector, provincial and territorial governments, educational institutions, at least 50%. The Committee was informed that all funds had been allocated. As previously stated, the FPS is expected to end on 31 March 2015. It is expected that more than 8,000 Aboriginal people have benefited from this programme and have found employment. [137] Table 3 presents federal spending over the life of the program. In Budget 2013, the federal government announced the creation of a new First Nations Job Fund (FNJF) with an investment of $241 million over four years.

Part of the funding for this initiative comes from a reform of the income assistance system in reserve, which will invest US$109 million in the FNJF. The FNJF supports the same type of projects, Training up to Employment, as those eligible under the ASETS; However, it focuses on First Nations youth between the ages of 18 and 24. The goal is to ensure that First Nations youth on social assistance have personalized vocational training and coaching to help them secure employment. Skills development and vocational training services are provided by ASETS contract holders. The ESDC manages the FNJF on reserve in partnership with First Nations Communities. [148] Some witnesses told the commission that they were able to use valuable resources both financially and for goods or services through ASETS. Partnerships have been established between ASETS holders, Aboriginal businesses, industry, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and various levels of government. These partnerships ensure that training programmes prepare Aboriginal people for existing and future employment in different sectors of the economy, particularly in the raw material extraction industry, which often exists in the immediate vicinity of Aboriginal communities. Some witnesses praised ASETS for its flexibility in cooperating with a wide range of sectors and partners. For example, the President of Kinder Morgan Canada told the Committee that the close link between industry needs and available training programs was important to the success of ASETS. [118] In addition, the Committee heard that: TCVI is governed by the chiefs of the six (6) member First Nations [the shareholders] and meets twice a month to discuss common issues, concerns, etc., in all areas of the program and provide direction to the Tribal Council.
