Indigenous pre-placement programs
We have pre-placement programs for Indigenous candidates who do not meet the minimum academic qualifications of our power line technician program or our power electrician training program.

- Indigenous line trades pre-placement program;
- Indigenous power electrician/mechanical technician pre-placement program.
Pre-placement programs for women
Manitoba Hydro is committed to achieving and maintaining a workforce that reflects the demographics of our province and the communities we serve. Currently, women are underrepresented in our skilled trades. We want to improve this by introducing more women to this highly rewarding and exciting area of work. These paid pre-placement programs are for women with limited trades-related experience that will provide them with an opportunity to develop the skills required to successfully compete for a position in either the power electrician or power line technician training programs. Educational upgrading will also be provided for candidates who do not meet the minimum academic requirements. These are 6 to 9 month programs with no guarantee of continued employment upon completion.
