Create Inclusive Worksites for Indigenous Workers

Creating Inclusive Worksites for Aboriginal Workers: A Case for Business outlines the many advantages Canada would be privy to through increased Indigenous inclusion, how instead of making cuts there would be greater benefits to implementing a greater number of employment training programs, and how a greater focus on Indigenous inclusion in the workplace is the solution to Canada needing more taxpaying workers.
