Aboriginal Cadet PrograM
Applications now being accepted for the 2017 Aborigial Cadet Program!
Deadline is April 1, 2017.
In 2004, the VPD signed an agreement with the British Columbia Aboriginal Workforce Strategy (BCAWS) and the Province of British Columbia to promote employment and career development opportunities. This lead to the development of the ACP, which is open to anyone of Aboriginal ancestry who would gain from this experience. It is currently funded by the Aboriginal Community Career Employment Services Society.
The program runs from June until the end of August. Successful applicants will spend half their time working with the VPD fleet services and the other half "riding along" with various sections within the Department. The pay is approximately $26.00/hour.
The VPD is looking for applicants that meet the following basic requirements:
