Indigenous Peoples are Canada’s original forest and conservation professionals.

The forest sector employed about 12,000 Indigenous people in 2016, and over 1.1 million Indigenous people live near forests, according to The State of Canada’s Forests 2020 report.

This workshop will focus on supporting Indigenous youth in their green careers.

Employers can learn how to create safe, supportive, and empowering Green Jobs spaces for Indigenous youth. We will talk about the benefits of hiring and training local young people as well.

Speaker: Brittany McCoy, West Program Manager, Outland Youth Employment Program (OYEP)

Manages the Alberta and British Columbia Outland Youth Employment Programs. Maintains industry and community partnerships, continues outreach and recruitment throughout the year.
