The employment satellite offices have Employment Officers that help registered clients with employment and/or training goals.
Registered clients also have access to other services such as computers, employment opportunities, resume development assistance, employment referrals and a host of other services to aid in their journey to employment.

GETTING STARTED Individuals must first meet with one of our Employment Officers to become registered with Kagita Mikam in order to access services offered. Employers are encouraged to contact one of our Community Developers for further information.
OUR FUNDING CRITERIA Programs and services are for Aboriginal clients residing in our catchment area. We also help clients in accessing funding sources from their home communities or organizations.
MEMBER COMMUNITIES We serve the status members of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte and Wahta Mohawks. Registered clients may receive services from one of our satellite offices or at an urban office close to their place of residence.
OTHER FIRST NATION & NON-STATUS CLIENTS There is funding available through our partnership with the Federation of Indian Friendship Centres (OFIFC) through the Apatisiwin program. This funding is available to help our registered clients that are not affiliated with our 5 First Nation member communities but reside within the Kagita Mikam catchment area. We also work with many other Local Delivery Mechanisms (LDMs) and agencies to secure funding for registered clients when appropriate and available.
