Pic River's Employment Support and Training was developed as a result of the Innovations Pilot Project, which was one of two in Ontario selected to address welfare dependency in First Nation communities. As an alternative to the Ontario Works Program, there are many aspects, which set the two apart. The objective is to provide the community with the resources to formalize its approach to addressing social assistance dependency. By combining the efforts of several of the programs on a case by case basis, Pic River First Nation Employment Support and Training will work towards increasing personal independency, address barriers faced by clients and improving employment prospects for First Nation members through direct contact with local employers.
