Fishing Master Class 4

A’paqt (Oceans): Building Bridges for Women and Indigenous Peoples in Marine Training

The focus of the A’paqt project directly aligns with Transport Canada’s Marine Training Program-Southern
objective, project categories and both target groups (women and Indigenous people) as it aims to facilitate access to and awareness of marine training and employment by underrepresented groups through a variety of offerings.
The goals of the A’paqt project stem from NSCC’s engagement with women and Indigenous people over several years. From these discussions, we have come to recognize the significant financial, social and cultural barriers that women and Indigenous people face when pursuing post-secondary training and employment.
NSCC aims to address these barriers and the unique needs of underrepresented groups through the A’paqt project, ultimately resulting in greater participation in marine training and careers.
