Six Independent Alberta First Nations Society of Hobbema

The Six Independent Alberta First Nations Society of Hobbema was incorporated in Alberta March 24, 2005.

Between 1999 and 2005, the Confederacy of Treaty Six (CT6) was the Aboriginal Human Resources Development Strategy (AHRDS). The AHRDS was a strategy of the federal government ("Canada") designed to help improve the employment opportunities of Aboriginal peoples and enable them to fully participate in the Canadian economy. The AHRDS involves the provision of financial assistance to Aboriginal organizations to support the costs of human resources development programs.

In 2005, the decision was made by Treaty Six Chiefs to replace CT6 with three separate AHRDA holders: Six Independent Alberta First Nations Society (S.I.A.F.N.), Tribal Chiefs Employment and Training Services Association (T.C.E.T.S.A.), and the Yellowhead Tribal Development Foundation (Y.T.D.F.). S.I.A.F.N. was initiated to continue the management and delivery of the Aboriginal Human Resources Development Agreement initiatives.

On April 1, 2005, the agreement was signed by Six Chiefs of our participating First Nations:

Chief Gerry Ermineskin - Ermineskin Cree Nation
Chief Russel Threefingers - Louis Bull Tribe
Chief Carolyn Buffalo - Montana First Nation
Chief Casey Bird - Paul First Nation
Chief Eddy Makokis - Saddle Lake Cree Nation
Chief Marvin Yellowbird - Samson Cree Nation

The Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy ("ASETS") is the federal government's successor strategy to the Aboriginal Human Resources Development Strategy ("AHRDS") and is designed to help improve the employment opportunities of Aboriginal peoples and enable them to fully participate in the Canadian economy in a relationship based on mutual trust, respect and openness.

The ASETS provides funding to Aboriginal organizations to support the costs of programs, services and other activities undertaken by those organizations which are designed to increase the participation in the Canadian labour market of the Aboriginal peoples served by those organizations.
