Start a career in land management. Help protect the land and future generations with responsible and sustainable development.
A career in land management is an exciting opportunity for Indigenous people to create brighter futures for themselves, their families and their nations.
Indigenous peoples have always been stewards of the land, respecting the resources and using them responsibly. Land managers play a vital role in helping First Nations develop those resources whether it is an office building, a recreation centre or tourist facility, a mine or an urban commercial and residential development.
Land managers ensure that development takes place in a sustainable way. We must make sure the decisions we make today will maintain the integrity of our land, water and other natural resources for generations to come.
Just as every town and city has a planning department, so every First Nation should have a robust land management system, staffed with qualified personnel.
While land managers work within First Nations’ governments, they are not politicians. Land managers follow the professional guidelines they learn from extensive training as well as their own experience on the job. Land managers serve successive governments and generations, providing wise advice as to how their First Nation should develop residential, commercial, industrial and recreational facilities.
Land managers are also important liaisons between their First Nation’s government and other levels of government. They must work with representatives of federal, provincial and municipal governments and understand how First Nations laws and needs intersect with those of other governments.
