Louis Bull Tribe ISETP Employment & Training News

First ISET agreement in Alberta. Louis Bull Tribe Employment and Training

After decades of talking and negotiating, the Louis Bull Tribe signed a landmark agreement with the Federal Government, giving the band control over training for its members and the money to make that happen.

On Monday June 3rd 2019, Louis Bull Chief Irvin Bull signed the documents on a stand-alone agreement with Jeff Scott, director of Indigenous Program Delivery, Alberta and BC, Western Canada and Territories Region. This Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) agreement is the first of its kind in Alberta and the western provinces and one of the first in Canada to give autonomy to First Nations when it comes to employment training for their people.

"We've been at this for years to get where we are today," said Bull, "and it took a lot of people working together to come to this agreement."

The agreement, signed in the Louis Bull Band Council chambers, provides funding to Indigenous service delivery organizations that design and deliver job training services to First Nations, Inuits, Metis and urban/non affiliated Indigenous people in their communities.

Prior to this agreement, said historian Sylvia Monterrossa, money from the federal government for first Nations employment training was filtered through third-party partners, each of whom would take a percentage for administrative fees.

"Now, there's no third-party. Now it's nation to nation funding."

Not only will the funding be going directly to Louis Bull, but the agreement enables Louis Bull to develop programming based on what the people of the community need and want.

"I'm really proud of our nation of Louis Bull and our staff," said Bull. "They're the ones who make the programs successful."

"We're super happy to be here today," said Scott. "I think this is a special day for me personally and my colleagues. We're pleased to be here with you as the first ISET agreement in Alberta, in western Canada and one of the first in Canada is signed."

With the agreement, Service Canada will be able to move forward with Louis Bull,"as you work toward your own destiny," said Scott.

"It's really a sign for all of us in Canada. It may be a little step but it's a big step towards reconciliation. I look forward to working with you in the coming years."

"It's such an emotional achievement for Louis Bull," said Councillor Tammy Moonias. "The reason we have it is for our youth -- what will be here for them when they're our age."

The answer's, said Moonias, is programs developed by the Louis Bull Nation for it's members, "to make it what they want it to be."
