ILS certificate program offers students career preparation in land and resources protection and management as well as a gateway to higher education.
This one-year certificate program consists of ten courses rooted in Indigenous knowledge of land, community, and ecology.
Students from anywhere with Internet access and a computer may join this program. Course content is identical to the regular ILS certificate program but offered entirely online. Asynchronous delivery means lessons are available anytime, but coursework and assignments follow the same weekly schedule as the regular program.
Classes start on September 2023, in Vancouver, B.C
