Overview of Our Programs
We support First Nations by helping community members gain the skills, knowledge, or certification to operate and maintain their infrastructure and housing programs. Our internal subject matter specialists transfer their critical skills and knowledge so that First Nation team members can effectively operate, maintain, and protect their community, ensuring that team member’s learning needs are met during training.
Our team of technical advisors and GIS technicians inspect federally-funded assets such as roads, and bridges, buildings such as schools and band offices, vehicles, solid waste, water, and wastewater systems to promote safe and strong community infrastructure.
Our team of environmental technicians provide resources that promote healthy lands and waters within traditional lands and on-reserve. These resources include environmental management, planning services, training, and outreach programs.
Our Home Inspections Coordinator organizes on-reserve housing condition inspections throughout Alberta. The condition assessments inform short and long-term maintenance planning of the current housing stock and validate needs for future development of housing projects.
We provide a holistic approach to support communities with waste reduction and waste management. Our primary goal is to support First Nation autonomy in the development, operation, and maintenance of sound social, environmental, and economical waste management systems.
Circuit Rider Training Program
Our team of technical advisors, trainers, and troubleshooters provide on-site, hands-on training, and mentoring services to water and wastewater operators to promote safe, clean drinking water, and proper care of wastewater systems.
Fire Protection and Prevention
Our fire team is made up of Level II Safety Code Officers with extensive experience in the fire field. We offer a wide range of services to Alberta First Nation communities along with accredited and non-accredited fire training.
Our team of IT professionals provide quality technical service and training to connect First Nations to community, education, and virtual health services to promote strong and healthy communities.
Personalized Rural Addressing Program
Our GIS Technician works to help First Nations communities develop addressing that works for them. This can include housing numbers and road names that can be found on Google Maps. This is a provincial program funded through Indigenous Services Canada (ISC).
