After delivering cultural support services and facilitating work placements for a Winnipeg Construction Association Training Project, First Nations entrepreneurs E.J. Fontaine and Eva Wilson-Fontaine identified a void in the market. In 2006, E.J. and Eva founded AMIK, Canada’s original Indigenous job board. AMIK immediately filled a niche within the market, simplifying work placement between the country’s fastest growing labour force and employers.
Used by over 20,000 job seekers and hundreds of Canadian employers, AMIK continues to lead the market with innovative and customizable solutions. A major factor contributing to AMIK’s success is that we are 100% Indigenous owned, which gives our people significant peace-of-mind. This allows Indigenous Canadians to apply with confidence and provides companies with an effective portal to recruit from the Indigenous workforce.
Over the years, AMIK has developed many partnerships including CN Rail, Great West Life, Assiniboine Credit Union, Johnston Group, PCL Construction and Air Canada. AMIK has since grown to become Canada’s #1 Leader in Indigenous Workforce Engagement & Training Services. Through innovative strategies and a wide range of customized solutions, AMIK continues to enhance the level of socio-economic participation of Indigenous people with a strong track record in recruitment & retention.
If you are looking for a practical and effective medium for Indigenous Engagement, AMIK provides a customizable Turn-Key Solution to meet your needs.
