Two high-profile Aboriginal career fairs are taking place in two very different locales in the province today.
The 8th Annual Athabasca Flying Career Symposium got underway today.
The Interprovincial Association on Native Employment is flying in industry, education and government representatives to four Far North communities over the next 3 days.
The presenters will make visits to Wollaston Lake, Stony Rapids, Black Lake and Fond du Lac. In addition, students will be flown in from Uranium City and Camsell Portage.
Meantime, a one-day career fair for Aboriginal high school students is taking place in Saskatoon today.
The “Blueprint for the Future” career fair is in its 9th year.
Organizers say the native youth will have a chance to meet and speak with Aboriginal and business leaders from across the country.
Former Olympic water polo team member Waneek Horn-Miller will be the keynote speaker.
The event is taking place at the Centennial Auditorium.
