Capacity Development (Employment, Education & Training)

The Government of C/TFN is structured to reflect the medicine wheel. Each department represents one portion of the medicine wheel. The Capacity Development Department represents the 'mental' portion of the medicine wheel. This department is responsible for overseeing the education, training, and employment of C/TFN citizens and staff.

C/TFN operates a licensed daycare, the Ya Dak Du Hidi Early Childhood Development Centre, overseen by the Capacity Department. The Ya Dak Du Hidi has 25 child care spaces and 7 staff.

The Capacity Development Department also supports the needs of C/TFN students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. This includes kids attending Ghuch Tla Elementary School in Carcross, as well as students who move on to high school in Whitehorse.

After highschool, the C/TFN Capacity Development Department provides support, financial and otherwise, for post-secondary and training needs of C/TFN citizens. This can include university or college training as well as certification needs for employment, such as First Aid, WHMIS, chainsaw safety, etc.
