UIHB is a multi-year initiative that aims to systematically address barriers sole-parenting urban Indigenous women face when trying to find meaningful employment, enhanced well-being, and prosperity for themselves and their children. UIHB is founded on the provision and co-ordination of key supports including housing, access to culture, childcare, education and life-skills, transportation, case co-ordination, health access and mental-health supports.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Community-led learnings regarding career development for urban Indigenous populations;
  • Results of UIHB process evaluation outcomes;
  • Exploration of self-determined career goals

Initiative échelonnée sur plusieurs années, UIHB s’attaque de manière systématique aux obstacles auxquels font face les mères monoparentales autochtones vivant en milieu urbain qui sont à la recherche d’un emploi gratifiant, et qui tentent d’améliorer leur sort et celui de leurs enfants. L’initiative UIHB est fondée sur la prestation et la coordination de moyens de soutien clés, dont l’hébergement, l’accès à la culture, les services de garde d’enfants, les études et les compétences de vie, le transport, la coordination de cas, ainsi que l’accès aux soins de santé et aux services de santé mentale.

Objectifs d’apprentissage:
  • Apprentissages communautaires liés au développement de carrière pour les populations autochtones urbaines;
  • Résultats du processus d’évaluation de l’initiative UIHB;
  • Exploration d’objectifs de carrière fixés par les femmes elles-mêmes
