Starting this July, TransAlta will open its doors to Paul Band First Nation high school students for employment.

Through an Aboriginal Youth Career Initiative in Trades and related Career Opportunities, as co-ordinated by CAREERS: The Next Generation and TransAlta, Paul Band students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 will have a chance to get in the fast lane to a successful career.
