Calls to Action:

7. We call upon the federal government to develop with Aboriginal groups a joint strategy to eliminate educational and employment gaps between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians.

92. We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources. This would include, but not be limited to, the following:

     i.        Commit to meaningful consultation, building respectful relationships, and obtaining thefree, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples                before proceeding with economic development projects.

   ii.        Ensure that Aboriginal peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities in the corporate sector, and that Aboriginal               communities gain long-term sustainable benefits from economic development projects.

  iii.        Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples,including the history and legacy of residential schools, the              United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations.              This will require skills based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.

 

"From the 1st day of training I realized that I would excel in this field of work. It's not necessarily the cleanest job but knowing that people will be safer from the work we do is satisfying enough. James and Bhanu have been amongst the best men I've had the privilege to work with and beside! Appreciate the opportunity and hope to make a career with 'got mold?' Thanks, James, for the amazing opportunity to learn a new trade."

“When got mold?™ came to do a training course in the Treaty Four area. I was excited to take the course to learn about the dangers in our air that can get us sick. It was an awesome learning experience and opportunity to take and I would recommend this course to anybody that's willing to learn about it. It was educating and informative and the staff and company were very polite and considerate when teaching the course and made everything very easy to understand."

"The program turned out be excellent. The students enjoyed the training and were able to take away knowledge about asbestos and mold along with hands on experience. We had excellent instructors that always made time for questions from the students. In the program they learned a lot about the mold business and how dangerous it can be if it’s not looked after! I would like to thank Mr. James Watson and his staff for giving the Pre-Employment Support Program the time to come out to our area and teach the First Nations the course. If I can I would like to have got mold?™ come out again and do a program within the very near future. In closing I would RECOMMEND inviting him out, you won’t be disappointed."

"Working with got mold?™ has been a great and rewarding experience for me. The company and my co- workers are both respectful and professional. The amount of people affected by mold and asbestos is shocking so the importance of educating communities and tradesmen is important to the company. I am glad that I can move forward with got mold ?™ my co-workers, and James Watson the CEO, who I can say is a great guy with a vision to help others, and to ensure mold and asbestos is done right with trained professionals and expertise."
