Ready to start a business? SRVTC can help!

Ready to Starting a Business

Each year, dozens of tradespeople and artisans graduate from vocational programs at Sabtuan Adult Education Services. Entrepreneurship is an exciting possibility for these graduates. Starting a business is also a dream for many others throughout Eeyou Istchee.

Upcoming programs at Sabtuan Regional Vocational Training Centre (SRVTC) will help community members turn these entrepreneurial ambitions into a reality.

SRVTC has announced several Spring 2019 programs that respond to the growing demand for Cree-owned businesses across Eeyou Istchee. Two new programs, “Starting a Business” and “Construction Business Management,” will focus on entrepreneurial skills and knowledge. Other vocational programs will include competencies that can be used to build mechanical contracting, tourism, or sports-related businesses in the future.

Eeyou Istchee the focus of Recruitment Event

It's the frost on the trees, the sparkle in the skies, the opportunity to live close to nature, and the feeling of community that draws many southerners to the north. And the Cree School Board is hoping those expansive sunrises and sunsets will help encourage even more people to consider living in Eeyou Eenou Istchee when it hosts its Recruitment Event in Montreal.
