Health region, SIIT sign MOU
The Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Saskatoon Health Region to provide more jobs for grads in the health field. “It formalizes and furthers our relationship so we can work together and it will benefit everyone in Saskatchewan, including our well-deserving students,” said Randell Morris, SIIT president and CEO. Bursaries and scholarships to allow First Nations and Métis youth to access health careers as well as working directly with regional training institutions to bridge people into jobs are part of the MOU. There are more than 13,000 employees within the health region and only four per cent of employees are Aboriginal. The goal of the Saskatoon Health Region is to raise that number to 10 per cent by 2014. Morris said SIIT had more than 1,500 graduates last year, which was one of its highest numbers yet.
