Employment Unit


Do you require assistance in jump-starting a meaningful career? The MoCreebec Employment Unit is here to help! We have a variety of programs and services available to help you reach your goals.

MoCreebec’s Employment Unit is a unique and comprehensive program designed to promote the placement of skilled Aboriginal People with employers seeking a skilled workforce within the various business sectors accross Canada.

The Employment Unit will be a bridge between the job and employers by providing a holistic, integrated, and principled approach toward employment and career solutions, as well as addressing employment and training barriers among Aboriginal People.

Our goals are to empower Aboriginal People in preparing for and securing employment, provide the security and sensitivity necessary to assist them, and keep pace with the constant changes occuring in the labour market.


The Apatisiwin Programme was formerly known as the OFIFC-GREAT Initiative (O-GI). O-GI began in 1999 and expired on March 31, 2010. The O-GI name signified the partnership between the OFIFC and Grand River Employment and Training (GREAT).

On March 31, 2010 the OFIFC and GREAT Boards and Directors agreed that they would allow the O-GI agreement to sunset naturally. As a result of the sunset of the OFIFC/GREAT partnership, the OFIFC decided to proceed into the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) as a separate entity entitled Apatiswin. Apatisiwin is a Swampy Cree word meaning employment, training, and jobs.
