Preserve northern wildlife, land, water, and communities through sustainable management and stewardship of renewable resources.

Program description

Renewable resources include the living portions of the natural world such as plants and animals as well as non-living resources such as air and water. Managing these resources so they are sustainable for future generations is a critical mission. Achieving this task involves a balancing act so that we can meet society’s present needs without harming the resource base for the future.

Students receive a Diploma of Renewable Resources Management (RRMT) after successfully completing a total of 22 academic courses over a two-year period as well as non-credit courses in Winter Travel and Survival, Wilderness First Aid and Firearms Safety. Most of these courses are delivered in a classroom setting with an emphasis on practical techniques acquired during mandatory labs, short field trips and three separate 10-day field courses.

Team and individual projects, discussions and presentations are important aspects of program delivery. Practising managers from the community frequently assist with the teaching.

Students take a set of core courses in first year that develop competencies in areas such as:

  • data collection
  • oral and written communication
  • computer use
  • mapping
  • basic biology

Two field courses between first and second year offer the chance to gain field experience, while many of the second year courses emphasize practical management aspects and give students the opportunity to choose from a series of electives.

Instruction reflects the cultural, political and employment realities in Yukon—particularly those associated with the implementation of land claim settlements—but program content is of wide application and graduates have found employment across Canada.

Our goal is to provide the knowledge, skills and perspectives to enable graduates to assist with the management of land, water, forest, fish and wildlife resources in the North; and to prepare students for transfer to degree level programs in fields related to renewable resource management.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the program have found jobs working in diverse fields including:

  • lands and resources offices for First Nations
  • fish and wildlife enforcement
  • park and land use planning
  • wildlife viewing
  • protected areas
  • interpretation
  • environmental assessment
  • fisheries
  • private sector consulting firms

Transferability

Students have used this program to transfer to degree programs at universities, and graduates can transfer diploma credits to enter year three of the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Northern Environmental and Conservation Sciences (ENCS) through the University of Alberta offered at Yukon University.
