ATEC is a 27,000-square foot, non-profit, community led initiative, post-secondary labor-Market-Intermediary training to employment facility. It was originally built to provide job training opportunities for work on the Wuskwatim hydroelectric generation project.
ATEC’s long-term focus is to offer a wide range of post-secondary and trades training opportunities to address the skills needed for the Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation and other First Nations in Canada.
"To provide technical and vocational education training to NCN members, and other First Nation communities in Canada in order to sustain a competitive aboriginal workforce."
This statement is important as it reflects and is complementary to the Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN) Mission and Vision which is:
“To exercise sovereignty that sustains a prosperous socio-economic future for Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation.”
ATEC is the not-for-profit centre of excellence which is a labour market intermediary incorporating training into employment initiatives. ATEC's Intake Education to Training Pathway (IETP) is a distinct approach at the grassroots level that incorporates a social job readiness program and indigenizes curriculum to assist individuals on their educational journey to success.
