The Metlakatla Development Corporation has developed an Education, Training and
Employment Strategy
 to prepare and support members in their wellness, education, and
employment readiness in order to move into job and career opportunities in and around
Metlakatla and Prince Rupert.

This strategy includes the implementation of an Employment Database for Metlakatla
members. So what does this mean for Metlakatla members? How will the database help
Metlakatla members?
Why do we need a database?
