By linking maps to data, Geographic Information Science (GIS) has become an indispensable tool in resource management – and that has opened the door to exciting new career opportunities for skilled GIS analysts. It is also an emerging field with growing job prospects. You could work for a natural resources company, First Nations company/community, environmental consulting group or government or municipal agency.
It takes skill to manage Saskatchewan’s vast fisheries, forests, wildlife and park areas. Integrated resource management practitioners have that skill – and the desire to use it. Your first job might be as a forestry worker, park interpreter or entry-level supervisor. It’s an excellent career choice if you want a hands-on role in environmental stewardship.
Our province’s natural resources are protected to ensure their long-term vitality. Resource and environmental law practitioners help ensure that protection is respected. Career opportunities are varied – work as a conservation officer, environmental protection officer or fishery, forestry or wildlife officer. You can also ladder into a bachelor of arts in Resource and Environmental Studies degree program.
