We endeavor to accomplish our mission through community engagements focused on Indigenous well-being be it emotional, physical, spiritual, environmental and/or infrastructure supports. We want to create opportunities for educating and training Indigenous peoples to gain employment in several fields including in the fields of non-destructive testing (NDT), environmental services, professional services, and red seal trades.
As we build our foundation, we intend to establish multiple initiatives in support of our vision including
the creation of a bursary program for Indigenous youth ending their high school careers wishing to enter
the workforce and practical “on the job” training and mentoring opportunities.
As we grow as will our initiatives, if you would like more information about the Weaving Roots
