Indigenous Partnership and Training

Indigenous Partnership and Training

NorthWind is at the forefront of comparable firms when it comes to Indigenous partnerships and training. Our approach focuses on building value through lasting relationships with our partners, developing capacity in local communities and delivering the innovative solutions our clients are looking for while respecting the Indigenous territories in which we work.

At the centre of these partnerships is the mutual interest in developing a trained workforce and improving the partner First Nation’s capacity to influence land management in their traditional territory.

As a licensed ECO Canada BEAHR trainer we can offer this training directly to First Nation communities on behalf of ECO Canada. Further, based on our success in delivering their courses we have presented on behalf of ECO Canada to train prospective trainers from other groups and organizations. ECO Canada’s training division maintains and administers the BEAHR training programs which are culturally relevant, skills-based environmental training programs for Indigenous learners. Each short-term program is community-based, employment focused and inclusive of Indigenous culture and local knowledge, and can be tailored to specific community interests while offering practical field experience.

Through our partnerships we can, in turn, provide employment to the program graduates to work in various capacities through the environmental site assessment, remediation and reclamation process.

This collaboration with the scientists and community members creates a unique cross-cultural approach. Working together, we provide an integrated approach to land management, environmental stewardship, and traditional knowledge on the First Nation’s traditional territory. The results of this partnership include innovative solutions for our clients and a sustainable business model that respects traditional values.
