In 1995, the Algonquin Nation Programs and Services Secretariat was mandated to provide training and employment programs under the Regional Bilateral Agreement which was in effect until 1998. In 1999, the Algonquin nation human resources and sustainable development (AN-HRSD) became an Aboriginal Human Resources and Development Agreement holder (AHRDA) with the mandate of the board of directors to act as an agent for the delivery of human resource development programs to its member Nation communities, to promote capacity building within its member communities by providing employment and training programs and economic development programs appropriate to the needs of the member First Nations and promote sustainable development within the traditional territory of Timiskaming First Nation and Barriere Lake.

The vision of the AN-HRSD

Our objective is to recognize and respect the customs, traditions, skills, talents and values of our people and to promote them when delivering the best possible services in the development and training of our members so that they may have a better quality of life now and in the future. Our goal is to promote sustainable community development by taking on a secondary role in order to help our communities reach their potential in their human and economic development. The AN-HRSD ensures that the organization founded by the people is well managed and operates in the best interest of its member communities and continuously applies itself to increase sustainable development and employment.

The mission of the AN-HRSD

Our vision is realized in part, at the community level, through community coordinators or human resources coordinators and other collaborators who assist the individuals to access the labour market or to register for pertinent training so that they may be successful in a career or a trade of their choice.

The success of our mission is accomplished through promotion and partnerships with other agencies in our member communities, with third parties and local and provincial governments.
