Fab Lab Onaki Recruiting Indigenous Youth


The First Peoples Innovation Center are currently recruiting indigenous peoples for their project called Fab Lab Onaki.
The First Peoples Innovation Center has developed the first Indigenous Fab Lab in Canada that offers a five-month paid training in Gatineau funded by Employment and Social Development Canada. The participants receive an allowance during the training and the internship.
The Fab Lab is considered by some to be a “third industrial Revolution” with its 3D printer, laser cutting and digital milling machine. It allows everyone to innovate, create, produce, distribute, repair and recycle.
The ONAKI Fab Lab is open to Indigenous youth (First Nations, Metis and Inuit) between 16-30 years old. The ONAKI Fab lab has different tools from the more traditional (carpentry, beading, sewing) to the most modern ones (laser cutting, 3D printers, etc.)
*This training is open to all Indigenous peoples of Quebec, however client must have their own lodging arranged during the duration of the program*
