NFMC Attends OYEP Career Fair 2023

On Friday, August 4, NFMC’s General Manager, Carmelo Notarbartolo, and Public Relations & Marketing Coordinator, Brett Redden, welcomed the opportunity to attend the Inaugural Outland Youth Employment Program (OYEP) Career Fair at Confederation College (Thunder Bay campus).
OYEP is a national network of land-based education, training and work opportunities for high school aged Indigenous youth. It provides six-week work experience providing training and education in a supportive space that replicates various work environments.
The program takes an inclusive approach to Indigenous education, recruitment, retention and provides a safe and predictable learning environment that can be tailored to meet the needs of local communities and partners.

OYEP collaborates with local Indigenous communities and consults with Elders to ensure youth feel culturally and spiritually supported in the workplace.

NFMC has been a proud GOLD sponsor of OYEP since 2019.  To learn more about OYEP’s amazing program, please visit
