The History

The Skills Build Project was initiated in 2017 when a post-secondary educator led outreach within various communities, including the Indigenous communities of Maskwacis and Enoch Cree Nation. The educator created partnerships within the community and led small cohorts of residents within sharing circles exchanging ideas, sharing knowledge and helping others build new skills for the betterment of their communities. The process has empowered individuals to become leaders within their communities.

Since the first iteration of Project Skills Build in 2017, the project has had many different approaches and has continued to evolve as a free and open process for Canadians, newcomers and refugees throughout the country, allowing people an opportunity to gain and build new skills to overcome adversity and barriers. 

In 2022, with assistance from our industry partners (not-for-profit, private and government), Allowed us to implement this free and open concept and successfully launch Project Skills Build, an online project to enable opportunities for Canadians to build (gain) new skills that will benefit them to obtain new employment opportunities by providing self-paced learning online within a variety of fields.
