We are a department that has grown and adapted over time to meet the evolving employment needs of our people.
On April 1, 2019, following a rebranding initiative Cree Human Resources has changed their name to Apatisiiwin Skill Development (ASD). In order to better service the territory and their clients ASD has changed their structure and service delivery. Their structure has been realigned into four divisions: Service Coordination, Program Coordination, Administration and Finance.
Each of the 10 communities has an Employment Counsellor, while Mistissini and Chisaibi has a Senior Employment Counsellor, Program Officers, as well as administrative and finance divisions staff located in Mistissini. Two new positions have been created to better compile labour market data (Labour Market Information Analyst; Mistissini) and provide support for post-secondary students with their integration into the labour market (Employment Integration Counsellor; Gatineau).
