The support I received from Métis Nation BC that allowed me to complete my Apprenticeship, marked a clear turning point in my life. Life before included living paycheck to paycheck, driving older vehicles and feeling like I couldn’t afford to get sick! On an Apprentice wage, I couldn’t afford to take the 10 weeks off every year to do school. All that changed when I contacted MNBC! After completion, I was able to basically triple my income, drive a new vehicle and accumulate some actual savings. I don’t worry about bills anymore, and I am continuing to learn, with further support. I recently completed the PPA program, which has given me skills and training that I can use as an Electrician and has opened many different possible career paths as well. I am very grateful for the support I have received and continue to receive, as I continue forward.
