The IT & Advanced Manufacturing sectors in Canada are growing at exponential rates. However, Indigenous talent has been a largely untapped talent source to meet this demand. The Ontario Linkages Project rose to this challenge and created opportunities for employers, post-secondary, and Indigenous employment/higher education organizations to connect and collaborate to share best practices, and innovate new career development strategies.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify the barriers for Indigenous engagement in these sectors
  • Glean insights about what innovative Indigenous and industry partnerships need
  • Be introduced to an inventory of resources from the project
