Moving forward with AMTA

AMTA is making its approach to Aboriginal workforce development more widely available to resource-sector industries in British Columbia.

Our mission, and the work we do, isn’t changing. AMTA remains committed to empowering First Nations to create economic health for themselves and their communities through skills training, education and career opportunities. What’s changed is we’ll be working with a broader group of resource-sector partners and companies, with more potential job opportunities for AMTA candidates.
