AWFT has been used by organizations and communities for two years through CESO and has served First Nation and Metis communities in the Atlantic region, Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and the Northwest Territories by targeting the specific labour -market and pre-employment needs of Abotiginal women.
The focus of AWFT is to encourage business and leadership skill development for more economic and political participation in the community and the overall Canadian economy.
Funding for the AWFT program comes from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada(INAC) and the Status of Women Canada(SWC), who have just recently joined as a financial partner by agreeing to fund $450,000 for a full three years.
The idea for developing the AWFT program came from Audrey Ahenakew, a volunteer advisor with CESO who at the time was the organization's regional manager for Saskatchewan.
Now CESO has partnered with the Native Women's Association of Canada to expand AWFT into a national program, which will be rolled out nationally in two phases.
