He has worked with and travelled to over 280 Indigenous communities throughout Canada and the United States. He has extensive knowledge of conducting environmental assessments, implementing environmental policy, project planning and permitting while working in conjunction with a variety of multi-disciplinary sectors. He has successfully collaborated with many stakeholder groups, researchers, institutes, government agencies and Indigenous communities and political organizations to address environmental concerns and identify practical solutions to environmental related issues.

Why is this webinar topic important for environmental professionals?

Indigenous awareness training is an integral component in creating environments where cultural diversity is appreciated, and where people from diverse cultural backgrounds communicate with each other respectfully. Ultimately, the goal of Indigenous Awareness is to help non-Aboriginals work with Indigenous people in ways that convey respect.

Environmental professionals who work with Indigenous communities can benefit from this topic by exploring ways to best work with Indigenous Peoples on environmental projects.
