Full course description

Co-Management (this is not a self-paced program)

Feb 27 - Mar 17

As Crown governments work to advance reconciliation and renew relationships with Indigenous peoples, co-management has become an area of increasing interest. Co-management, the shared administration of natural resources and areas by Crown and Indigenous governments brings together multiple perspectives, such as western science and traditional knowledge, and can help to build more durable solutions to resource management conflicts. In 1993, the landmark Gwaii Haanas Agreement was signed, which committed Canada and the Haida Nation to cooperative management of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. Over the following decades, co-management arrangements in Haida Gwaii have advanced to include several other marine and terrestrial resources and protected areas. This makes Haida Gwaii an ideal case study in co-management. This online professional development program is an opportunity for representatives from diverse sectors such as Indigenous, federal, provincial and municipal governments as well as industry and non-government organizations, to develop the understanding, tools and strategies required to begin and/or advance co-management initiatives, based on experiences in Haida Gwaii.
