“The Indigenous Student Employment Opportunity gave me an advantage… career opportunities, leadership skills and my managers’ support to achieve my educational goals. Living on Canada’s west coast, I never expected to work for the federal public service. This initiative allowed me to explore and have adventures in the Government of Canada.” “I was afraid I’d be discriminated against because of my handicaps. I found open-mindedness and a community of students living similar experiences.

 I was welcomed and trained with access to accommodation measures … Through the student network, I made friends and saw that I wasn’t alone in living with a disability, and in wanting to be an active member of society. I loved my experience!” “Work this summer was a dream. Early morning rides across beautiful Lake Superior have no comparison. I helped Fisheries and Oceans in their work with Lake Sturgeon. Catching, processing and releasing these beautiful animals was truly amazing. Thanks to the Federal Student Work Experience Program, I was able to work with fantastic people on fantastic projects!”
