Hello Lax Kw’alaams members,
We welcome you to this year’s Coast Tsimshian Career Booklet, Opportunities. This year we have moved our annual career fair to print, due to the restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic. This annual initiative is coordinated in partnership by Lax Kw’alaams Business Development and Metlakatla Development Corporation.
We are glad that you have picked up this book and are interested in learning about the different career opportunities available to you within our traditional territory and beyond. This book is intended to assist you with finding meaningful employment, learning about the different training opportunities that lead to employment, and understanding the ways that unions can help you achieve your career objectives.
In this booklet, we aim to highlight a variety of companies working in the traditional territory of the Coast Tsimshian. Our business partners (joint venture companies working with Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla) will be highlighted with a Coast Tsimshian Enterprises logo beside their company name. Each company will provide you with the contact information for the local hiring person, training coordinator or union representative, who you may contact directly if you have any questions for their organization. Each submission gives a brief description of their projects planned for the coming year and the location of their work – so you, our members, understand some of the projects planned within the territory.
Our goal at the end of the day is to increase employment and training opportunities for Lax Kw’alaams and Metlakatla members. This is our first year creating a print resource for you, and if you find it beneficial, please let us know – we would like to hear your feedback. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
