Excerpt:

This report weaves together findings from data gathered through two other research reports published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) Manitoba. The purpose is to build upon evidence that demonstrates how and why a Labour Market Intermediary (LMI) can address the challenges that Aboriginal people with barriers to employment face when transitioning from training to employment. An LMI links low-skilled workers with semiskilled and skilled employment in targeted sectors to create job opportunities for people with barriers to employment. It brokers relationships with employers, education and training institutions, government, funding agencies, unions and community based organizations to help clients find and keep good jobs.
