3 Food for Thought Defining poverty by how many dollars a person earns per day is demeaning and poor way of stating a problem. Poverty is no so much dollars per day but the exclusion from networks and productivity and exchange Pope John Paul II In post industrial world, wealth of nations is not only amount of natural resources it has in the ground but also in the human mind and in human creativity G. Wiegel, Scholar Current models have problems solved by others rather than person directly affected. This approach often removes their dignity and control over their own destiny Andreas Widmer

During or after this period the client and Acosys have several avenues for extending the contract if they wish. Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 17

18 The Acosys AIP: AIP Process Acosys provides for every two or three Consultant/Mentors on project (depending on the price point), we place one Intern, free of charge, to maintain an Aboriginal component, which is the core of the AIP and our business mission. Acosys uses existing Standing Offer And Supplier Arrangements (SO/SA) or Master Supplier Agreements (MSA) and works with the Health Canada s IT group and HR departments to facilitate the placement and integration into Health Canada s workforce. Our program is distinct from most existing Aboriginal skills development programs in that, while they provide for entry-level and trade internships, with wage and training subsidies, ours caters to budding private sector professionals (technologist and management), offering on-the-job experience and coaching.

26 Additional Thoughts Providing direction

27 Challenges for Aboriginal Professionals Providing direction Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 27

28 Challenges, Barriers and Obstacles In 2009, Aboriginal unemployment sat at 14.8%, about double the national rate. In 2006, the median income for Aboriginal peoples was $18,962 30% lower than the $27,097 median income for the rest of Canadians. According to the Employment Equity Act Review (EEAR) of 2001, Aboriginals are represented in the workforce at rates well below their availability, proportional to other groups. Whatever the reasons historical, geographical, educational Aboriginals suffer disadvantages in the labour market, compared to the mainstream. The costs of this under-employment of Aboriginal talent are not just individual, but affect the entire society, as any waste of human resources does inevitably. Internship programs like this one benefit the interns, their communities, and ultimately the whole marketplace. Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 28

29 Challenges, Barriers and Obstacles On top of this, a disproportionate number of university-educated Aboriginals seek and find employment in the public sector, rather than the professional private sector. The EEAR demonstrated that Aboriginals are represented in the federal public service at almost 200% of their proportional labour market availability. With a growing Aboriginal population, especially in cities, it is increasingly important to encourage public sector workers and new graduates to move into the private sector. This AIP provides a vehicle to get them on their way. Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 29

31 Program Approaches Work integration and education programs are designed for building up Aboriginal self-sufficiency and inclusion, and we agree that economic development and greater employment are an important part of this. Programs are on a macro level, through policies such as PSAB, on a micro level through partnership with NAOs, and also through various nonprofessional internships or work integration programs. We want to help the HRSDC extend its solutions into the professional private sector, on the micro level. Existing training programs typically involve various forms of course training, on-the-job training, work experience, life skills training, job search assistance, resume preparation, transportation aid, and interview skills. In other words, they are short term interventions. We want to do long term intervention that lead to building talent visibility with our customer that lead to full-time position with our customers. Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 31

32 Current Program Gaps Many programs show success within a six-month window, but clients often return to income assistance after a year. Longer term follow-up would properly reveal which programs help clients become truly economically selfsufficient. Most employment and training programs have three main weaknesses, particularly when applied to Aboriginals: 1. These programs do not provide the sequential learning, nor the essential reading and writing skills derived from years of schooling. 2. Limited skills training qualifies the participant for a specific job, but does not support the "jump" to a higher level occupation that offers better pay and security. 3. As a result, participants often cannot increase their wage earnings enough to remove the incentive to stay on social assistance. In most jurisdictions, income assistance programs compensate clients significantly more than low wage employment obtained with weak skills. Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 32

33 Private Sector Needs and Challenges The private sector, awoken to the benefits of diverse employment, wants actively to recruit Aboriginal talent. However, recruitment and retention have posed constant challenges. Part of the solution is to build new talent, fresh from a postsecondary education. Another part is to build career bridges for Aboriginal professionals transitioning from the public to the private sector, a move which can prove more difficult than it sounds since there is gap between private and public sector experience. The professional private sector also requires more flexible wage subsidies than are currently available. The solution to these challenges can and should be implemented in the private sector, with the cooperation of willing private companies, National Aboriginal Organizations (NAOs) and the government.

34 Government of Canada Goal and Objectives for Aboriginal Inclusion Providing direction

35 Federal Government Priorities Federal Government s Priorities for Aboriginal People: Education: Improving educational outcomes of Aboriginal learners Reconciliation, Governance and Self Government: Healing past injustices and strengthening Canada's relationship with Aboriginal People Economic Development: Improving economic well being, prosperity and self reliance The new Federal Framework for Aboriginal Economic Development will be consistent with Advantage Canada by: focusing government so that roles and responsibilities are aligned to maximize economic outcomes for Aboriginal Canadians; supporting skills and training that will create new opportunities and choices for Aboriginal peoples; leveraging investment and promoting partnerships with the private sector to produce sustainable growth for Aboriginal peoples; and acting to free businesses to grow and succeed by removing barriers to Aboriginal entrepreneurship and leveraging access to commercial capital House of Commons: Standing Committee on Finance: How to achieve a sustained economic recovery in Canada? How to create quality sustainable jobs? Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 35

36 Canada Economic Action Plan Responsible Resource Development Responsible Resource Development is the Government of Canada s plan to create jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity for all Canadians by streamlining the review process for major resource projects. Support for Workers and the Unemployed The Government of Canada offers programs and initiatives supporting workers and the unemployed. Some of these include the Wage Earner Protection Program, the Hiring Credit for Small Business, and the Helmets to Hardhats program. Shipbuilding The National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS) will create jobs and generate significant economic benefits in shipbuilding and related industries across Canada Building Canada's North The Government of Canada has made the North a top priority, with a clear vision for the North as a healthy, prosperous region within a strong and sovereign Canada.

37 Whole of Government Approach All department need to focus on Government of Canada priorities: 1. Keep economy moving forward 2. Creating jobs 3. Skills and Training 4. Environment (natural and socio-economic) Also to be considered are: 1. Urban aboriginal inclusion 2. Shifting sands of recent ruling (i.e. Daniels, Red River Land Claim, etc.) Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 37

38 Alignment of Government Goals HRSDC Building Aboriginal Human Resources Capacity Creating more opportunities for better skills building Creating more employment AANDC Improving Aboriginal well-being and quality of life of Aboriginal people Focus economic development Providing more contract opportunities in both Public and Private Sector PWGSC Aboriginal Vendor Inclusion Set-Aside Aboriginal Benefits Requirements Tous droits réservés, ne pas reproduire pour distribution 38

39 Sustainable Procurement Procurement is called sustainable when it integrates requirements, specifications and criteria that are compatible and in favor of the protection of the environment, of social progress and in support of economic development, namely by seeking resource efficiency, improving the quality of products and services and ultimately optimizing costs. Through sustainable procurement, organizations use their own buying power to give a signal to the market in favor of sustainability and base their choice of goods and services on: economic considerations: best value for money, price, quality, availability, functionality; environmental aspects, i.e. green procurement: the impacts on the environment that the product and/or service has over its whole life-cycle, from cradle to grave; and social aspects: effects of purchasing decisions on issues such as poverty eradication, international equity in the distribution of resources, labor conditions, human rights.
