Marine Field Work
Recipient: Kitamaat Village Council
Sectors: Capacity Building
Strategy: Human Development
Description: This project was to assist with building capacity within the Haisla First Nation in the science and technical field, where lack of capacity has been an ongoing barrier. The project entailed a selected Haisla member with post-secondary science courses spending an allotted amount of time job shadowing with the Environmental Manager and time in Smithers working on various projects and learning the inner workings of the Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection. The funding is to pay for boat costs for the selected recipient’s travel to and from work sites.
