MNBC announces new program guidelines for STEPS program

The Métis Nation British Columbia has conducted a thorough review of its Skills Training, Employment & Post-Secondary (STEPS) funded program guidelines and has approved a new set of program guidelines. The new guidelines, which will come into effect on April 1st, include increased wrap-around support for Métis learners and trainees who are enrolled in school and training; simplified application and assessment processes; and increased support offerings for those interested in attending postsecondary or training programs. “Supporting Métis learners and innovating our program guidelines to better meet the evolving needs is critically important,” said MNBC Minister of Postsecondary Education Susie Hooper and MNBC Minister of Employment and Skills Training Dean Gladue. “We are pleased to see more modernization in STEPS that will see greater wrap-around supports for our Citizens looking to advance their education.”
