The main objectives and goals of the Capacity Advisor is to build and maintain relationships with stakeholders and beneficiaries to enable Inuvialuit to be equal and meaningful participants in all areas of employment and training opportunities.
Much of their work aligns and supports other reporting areas, like meeting to make more apprenticeship opportunities with IDC Construction, or the ongoing Development of the Inuvialuit Bachelor of Education Immersion program you might also find under Inuvialuktun and Cultural area goals.
- Contribution to M-18 future employment falls under the Capacity mandate- see the Get Ready poster and the IESP Opportunities Guide work has recently meant conducting follow-up interviews regarding career interests and encouraging possible ongoing apprenticeships with Ferus LNG plant Summer students. With such work, the Capacity team is closely involved in supporting the needs of the ISR communities and its beneficiaries.
- Capacity works to create an Inuvialuit Labour Pool, comparing to Labour Market trends so that beneficiaries will know where gaps are to fill.
- Put together material about post secondary requirements for designated careers.
- Help and provide additional support so students stay in school; research Housing policy for those attending school outside their community.
- Meet with CCs to identify training needs in the ISR.
- Participate in Steering Committee on Digital Literacy.
- Work with HR to develop and implement succession plans for each role within the Inuvialuit Corporate Group.
Capacity Advisors work with community members to improve or enhance all areas of obtaining a meaningful lifestyle with dignity, whether it be healthy living, cultural activities, or increasing education levels. The needs are met by working together with partnerships to navigate challenges or barriers and by developing programs and skills to support beneficiaries. Community members must lead the successful initiatives.
