The Prince George Nechako Aboriginal Employment and Training Association (PGNAETA) is pleased to work in partnership with the Government of Canada in delivering the BC Rural & Remote Homelessness Partnering Strategy (2014-2019). The Homelessness Partnering Strategy is an initiative supported by Service Canada aimed at reducing and preventing homelessness across Canada.
The HPS is delivered through a unique community-based approach that gives communities the flexibility and tools to identify and address their own community's distinct homelessness needs and priorities. Within the strategy there are five (5) key priority area's in which projects can be supported.
The agreement between PGNAETA and the Government of Canada is a five year agreement to serve as the Community Entity and encompasses the delivery of $4.9 million dollars investment into projects across the Province over the course of the agreement.
Under the Community Entity Model, PGNAETA works collaboratively with the BC Regional Advisory Board (RAB), an ad-hoc Committee who is responsible for providing guidance and recommendation to the implementation and delivery of the Community Investment funds.
