Description

ABOUT Miziwe Biik Aboriginal Employment and Training was created in 1991 to meet the unique training and employment needs of aboriginal peoples. Miziwe Biik provides the Greater Toronto Area’s Aboriginal community with training initiatives and employment services.

MISSION Our mission is to provide services to the *First Nations (status and non-status), Inuit, and Metis peoples in the Greater Toronto Area; to work with employers to secure employment opportunities; to deliver federal and provincial programs; and, promote Aboriginal* entrepreneurship and the development of our economies.  We will work with individuals, other agencies and groups to provide these services and achieve our mission.

VISION Miziwe Biik is committed to assisting all persons of Aboriginal* ancestry to attain a better quality of life. We believe that community needs and aspirations are paramount. We are committed to strengthening the community through partnerships that promote equality and self-reliance. We will provide training and employment opportunities in a supportive environment in which people can affirm their Aboriginal*identities and develop to their fullest potential. We are committed to the belief that it is through traditional and cultural values, practices and resources that we will reclaim our destiny.
