Kebaowek Land Management and Resources
Environmental Technician - Protection and Compliance Graduate 2017
"This two year program was filled with hands-on learning experiences like ecology, toxicology and biology labs that took place outdoors. We also had the experience to learn inside the chemistry and microbiology laboratories, micro was one of my favourite classes. After graduation in 2017, I was hired by my hometown reserve Kebaowek First Nation to work on a walleye spawning habitat restoration project, this opened the door for me to my position I am in now. Being in this field I have had the chance to work in fisheries, eastern wolf species at risk studies, water quality conservation, environmental assessments, drinking water industry and also consultations. Going to Canadore and taking my program is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I would encourage anyone who has a passion for the environment to take this program as well, you will not be disappointed!"
