What is the Aboriginal Youth Work Exchange Program?
This is a program which provides students who self-identify as Aboriginal* and are between the ages of 15 to 24 (up to 29 for persons with a disability) with eight-week work placements in the summer.
The participant focuses on resource management projects, job skills readiness training and personal development training.
Each participant remains with the program over three summers, during which time an exchange component is completed between the MNR and an Aboriginal community and/or organization.

Recruitment for these positions is facilitated in partnership with participating Aboriginal communities and organizations.
(* As per the constitutional definition of Aboriginal: First Nation, Inuit or Métis)
