Job Entry Navigator Program

The Esquao Job Entry Navigator works one-on-one with Indigenous women to provide assessments and supports to help them successfully enter or re-enter the workforce.

Individualized plans are developed that could include accessing training and enhancement programs and services, attending inspirational events, and expanding their cultural knowledge. With support from Esquao, Indigenous women who wish to work will be well-prepared to take advantage of employment opportunities.
