A Model of a Preparation for Employment Program for the Northern Prairie Region.
Saskatchewan NewStart, Inc., Prince Albert.
To help native Canadians derive the maximum benefits from economic developments of incoming industries and enable them to cope effectively with emerging problems characteristic of an industrializing society, the Preparation for Employment Program (PEP) was developed. In the preparation phase at this time and soon to enter the Infrastructure Developmental Phase, PEP will be put into operation in the Meadow Lake area, where a pulp mill and townsite will be constructed. Planned by various agencies and industries, and concerned with long-term job training, the developmental effort will utilize six approaches: job development, adult training, concerned services development, community development, educational development training, and economic development. Presented in this report is the model to be used in the implementation of the training program. Only the first two components are complete in this report. When finished, the program may be varied to fit similar situations. Detailed appendixes supplement the text. (SN)
