Nations Creation Is an exciting Social Enterprise that began in October 2016 at St:l Nations Vedder Road site. Thanks to a Partnership-Based Labour Market Training Project funded by the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation, this project will support workers interested in training in sophisticated, computer-based light manufacturing and also support indigenous artists.
