Online Micro-Certificate in Co-Management of Natural Resources
This online professional micro-certificate is a unique opportunity to build the foundation necessary to tackle complex natural resource management issues, and steer towards a future advancing co-management initiatives, institutional and relational change, and intercultural understanding, especially as Crown governments work to advance reconciliation and renew relationships with Indigenous Peoples and communities.
Applications are open to public, private, and non-profit sector professionals who have demonstrated an interest and need for professional training and development in the area of co-management. While the CNR program is based in a natural resource context, the key learning and foundational concepts of co-management, engagement, building relationships, creating change in complex systems can be applied in other industries and sectors
This micro-certificate consists of three courses that can be taken at your own pace over a two-year time period, totalling approximately 60 hours of work.

“Among many pieces of strong content, the biggest value was the local connections with Haida leaders and community members; their honesty and openness with us - their stories were grounding and let us get a glimpse at what the future might be.”
“Haida people have had an intrinsic connection with this land for thousands of years. The work of our ancestors is present in the forest today and we continue our struggle to protect these sacred workplaces and the forests that contain them. The forests, lands and waters of Haida Gwaii have much to teach about a sustainable connection between human beings and the nature world. The Council of the Haida Nation supports […] educational programs that bring students from across Canada to experience the uniqueness of Haida Gwaii and Haida culture”
