REGINA — Crown Investments Corporation (CIC) has announced a new Indigenous internship program entitled “Crown Career Pathways” in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action No. 92, which calls for increased employment opportunities for Indigenous peoples.
CIC worked with the Crowns to develop the program to provide a mechanism to bridge Indigenous graduates from eligible post-secondary institutes into permanent employment opportunities with the Crown sector, provincial government or the private sector in Saskatchewan.
Crown Career Pathways is a $1.2 million two-year pilot program with 22 interns being hired (11 each year) for positions in the Crowns – SaskPower, SaskTel, SaskEnergy, SGI, SaskWater, Lotteries and Gaming Saskatchewan and CIC. The Crowns will select the interns from recognized post-secondary institutes in Saskatchewan according to their individual workforce needs. Positions will begin to be posted in October 2023.
Following the two-year pilot, a review will be conducted to measure outcomes and determine future program options.
