"SIIT has a long history of developing and delivering innovative programming, driven by market need, that supports workforce development and capacity-building in First Nation communities across the province," said Riel Bellegarde, President & CEO of the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies. "Our programs are designed from the ground up from a First Nations worldview. That is what makes an SIIT certificate or diploma so unique. They provide our graduates with the cultural grounding and competitive edge to lead in their industry of choice. Business and Industry are looking for skilled First Nation employees, and an SIIT certificate or diploma opens those doors".
With a provincial footprint of three campuses, nine Career Centres, over 30 community-based learning sites, and two mobile program delivery units, SIIT continues to innovate in their approach to programming – meeting industry needs and exceeding standards of program development – while ensuring an environment rooted in Indigenous culture, where traditional knowledge is shared, and language and culture are nurtured.
