First Nation Forestry Diploma Program
This accredited forestry based program trains students to become forester technicians with related skills that support the expansion of innovative green jobs in the area of forestry and renewable energy.
Participants have the opportunity to gain a combination of theory, technical hands-on experience, and cultural and traditional knowledge from a First Nation perspective. There are many practical hands-on opportunities throughout the program; participate in field camp and practice forestry skills while developing teamwork skills. Individuals acquire the skills to work effectively in natural resources management – from identifying trees to working with high-tech computers.
The program gives the student the knowledge and ability to make assessments and give input based on First Nation values and the understanding of the environment. Forestry Technicians are responsible for resource management planning and protection. The students’ success in this program together with experts and community leaders will make a difference to ensure a sustainable environment.
There are several major employers in the field seeking to hire graduates; hydroelectric companies, conservation authorities, First Nations, municipalities, forest industry (woodlands, sawmills, pulp mills), government agencies, forest nurseries, federal/provincial forestry related ministries, and private contractors both in Canada and abroad.
