Vocational opportunity and the Canadian Indian: Ci71-966E-PDF

educational assistance, scholarships, jobs.

"This booklet was prepared for the guidance and information of the Indian student, his parents, and others involved in the education of Indian youth. During the 1949-50 school year, only 58 out of a total Indian pupil population of 23,409 were enrolled in universities, colleges and vocational schools. Fifteen years later, during the 1964-65 school year, there were 1,125 students in universities, colleges and vocational schools. There were also 560 enrolled in upgrading programs to prepare them for vocational and technical schools. Although more Indians than ever before are taking vocational training or other kinds of higher education, there still are many young Indians who are not taking advantage of the opportunities open to them. The purpose of this booklet is to let students know what educational opportunities are available to them and how to make use of these opportunities. The goal of the Indian Affairs Branch is to prepare every student for employment. The Government of Canada will provide the financial assistance and the guidance. The rest is up to the Indian students and their parents."--Foreword.
