Indigenous Skills Employment Training (ISET) Program

The ISET program supports Indigenous women to improve their skills through training and education, and to find meaningful employment.

Supports and services include individual training purchases, self-employment benefits, group training, special projects, and on-the-job training.

Esquao’s ISET program provides employment and training support services across Alberta for First Nation, Métis, Inuit, urban and non-affiliated Indigenous women aged 15 years or older.

The coordinator was so nice and supportive during the time I was a sponsored student. I never had any problems that I felt I wasn’t able to be open and outspoken about. I am very appreciative and grateful for the program, they helped me with financials in regard to my tuition and books, and without their support I wouldn’t have been able to.
