Earlier, we reported the provincial government hadn't yet sent an job poster to the First Nations University of Canada's school of Indian social work - this, despite the fact the ministry of children and family development is looking for candidates to "staff over 100 regional (social work) positions, many of which include First Nations or Metis opportunities." But, in an interview with your humble organ, communications manager Matt Gordon said "in the next week or so we will be job posting there. And we've been working with them to create the ad. And we will also be visiting them to conduct a job fair. And that's going happen in the near future" - perhaps in the next month or so. Mr. Gordon added the ministry will be doing similar recruitment activities at the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology's social work department.
