ASET Holders in BC

One of the key questions I got at the BC Truck Loggers Convention in Victoria last week was who are the local Aboriginal Skills Employment and Training organizations, as these are the best groups to partner with to train and employ Aboriginal people in BC.

There are 16 of these ASETS in BC. See the list below.
