The Trust Adapts To Serve The Region
The Trust is developing a short-term plan to help guide its activities in the next 18 to 24 months. Currently, the Trust is seeking input from its volunteer advisory committees, First Nations leaders, elected leadership of local governments, partners, as well as a cross section of other Basin organizations. In late August, the Trust will seek feedback from people in the Basin through an online platform on the themes, opportunities and potential actions that emerge.

Helping You Become Employed
The Trust’s Training Fee Support Program helps unemployed and underemployed people, and those temporarily laid off due to COVID-19, take short-term courses, online or in-person, to help them secure employment. Read about how one Basin resident got the training he needed to gain employment.
