Metlakatla Employment Database Draw extended!

The Metlakatla Development Corporation has developed an Education, Training and Employment Strategy to prepare and support members in their wellness, education, and employment readiness in order to move into job and career opportunities in and around Metlakatla and Prince Rupert.

This strategy includes the implementation of an Employment Database for Metlakatla members.  So what does this mean for Metlakatla members?  How will the database help Metlakatla members?

Why do we need a database?

  • We need this information in order to provide members with employment opportunities.
  • We need this information to know what kinds of jobs and careers are currently available and will be available.
  • We need to know what kinds of programs, services and supports members will need to complete training and enter employment.
  • We need to plan funding, partnerships and joint ventures and Metlakatla business development.
  • We need the database to link members with employment opportunities in and near our communities.

The Metlakatla Employment Database is an excellent tool that can assist in meeting all of these needs, however, the tool is only useful if it is being utilized.

In an effort to get as many Metlakatla members onto the database as possible, MDC is offering each member that enters their resume information onto the database the chance to win $500 cash!!  If you would like to get your resume onto the database and the chance to win $500 cash, please contact Tara J. Leighton, Employment Coordinator, at the Coastal Training Centre at 250-627-8822 or send her an e-mail at

All resumes must be entered into the database by Friday March 31, 2017 in order to be eligible for the draw.  (All members participating in the draw must log into the database to ensure the accuracy of their information and that there are no outstanding details that they need to add in order to be eligible for the draw).   The draw will be held extended until Friday March 31, 2017.
