In 2018, the Tulo Centre of Indigenous Economics will be launching a new certificate program. The Certificate in First Nation Applied Lands Management will provide students with a practical skillset in surveying, mapping, GIS, planning and parcel/boundary principles.
The focus of this program is on applied lands management – surveying, mapping, boundary principles and land use planning, and will culminate in a project that applies the skills learned to an existing issue in each student’s community.
This certificate is comprised of eight courses offered as one-week intensive seminars and are led by an experienced Tulo instructor.
Two courses will be offered in 2018:
This course introduces students to the fascinating differences of land tenure systems across Indigenous lands in general, and First Nation reserves in particular.
This course offers an introduction to managing and processing geographic information in a digital world with a focus on Indigenous communities.
A student bursary program is available to provide limited financial support to First Nations in Canada to attend the accredited certificate programs.
To register for this program or to find out more information, please visit www.tulo.ca or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
