The NWAC ISET program helps Indigenous women and gender-diverse individuals fully participate in economic opportunities. NWAC believes education can help Indigenous women, girls, and gender-diverse people achieve economic success. Empowerment is the foundation for strong families and communities.
Through NWAC’s agreement with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) we are able to provide financial supports such as tuition, living allowance, childcare, job starts, and other resources to help Indigenous women and gender-diverse people reach their employment and skills training goals.
