Native Aboriginals Help Build For Olympics

Many Canadian Native Aboriginal individuals who are short on skills with uncertain futures in the British Columbia region are getting some help from hardware retailer Rona. Rona has created a centre in Vancouver where numerous Native Aboriginal individuals are getting trained with special skills using construction tools to help build for the 2010 winter Olympics. Rona of course is supplying all the construction tools and materials.

This is a win win situation for all. It is benefiting the Olympics since things are getting built for the event. Native Aboriginals are getting useful training in skills that will make them employable in the future. And Rona is getting some great PR as a result.

The 2010 winter Olympics already has a Canadian Aboriginal flavor with its logo mascot derived from an Inuit inukshuk. For more details, see Inuit Inukshuk Olympics.
