Providing Financial Assistance That Leads to More Equitable Occupations

Our Indigenous Education Bursary Program supports predominantly First Nation, Inuit and Métis students across Canada by providing financial assistance to help them in their quest for education that leads to more equitable occupations. These bursaries are given to students who align with the “4 Pillars” of career path that Weaving Roots Foundation (WRF) has identified as leading to executive class outcomes.

Non-Destructive Testing

Weaving Roots sees the importance of Indigenous Peoples involvement in Non-destructive testing methods to ensure integrity in industries where a failure of a component would cause significant community hazard or environmental loss, such as in transportation, pressure vessels, building structures, piping, and hoisting equipment.

Indigenous peoples are the natural guardians of the planet and ecosystems in which live. Evaluation, analysis and reclamation are pivotal to protection efforts and are best conducted by those with natural bonds to and understanding of their environment.

The image of Indigenous workers only filling flag bearing and unskilled positions is tired and over. While pride is proper in all working and providing roles, Weaving Roots sees the future filled with mastered professional Indigenous peoples. These roles provide the entire community a shift in dependence to self reliance and are certainly underrepresented currently.

Apprenticeship and Trades

Weaving Roots knows that Canada is staring at a potential shortage of more than 60,000 skilled trades workers by 2025, and these are very conservative estimates. This means the actual shortage of skilled trades workers can be much higher. Indigenous people are poised and ready bridge the gap and be the skilled builders of our future.
