Recruitment for the Southern Aboriginal Pre-Placement Program occurs every Spring in which 8–10 candidates are hired from various communities South of the 53rd parallel. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
The selection process includes aptitude testing, panel interview, and a one day Skills Assessment and Trade Orientation session. Those candidates selected for an interview must provide a current driver's abstract at the time of their interview. If requested, interviews can be conducted in most Aboriginal languages.
