BEAHR Articulation for Post-Secondary Education
A Pathway to Earn Environmental Education Credit for BEAHR Indigenous Training Graduates
Our BEAHR Indigenous training programs are unique, as they combine western science with Indigenous Knowledge, inclusive of Elder and TK holder participation, to provide career-based environmental training for Indigenous learners. By blending practical, field-based skills with classroom theory, our graduates can quickly secure meaningful entry-level employment in local labour markets. Through BEAHR articulation partnerships, these graduates can also obtain college credits towards applicable post-secondary environmental education.
Articulation partnerships are important to reduce barriers to learning success and increase the opportunities for BEAHR graduates to pursue higher forms of education. This pathway also provides an opportunity for graduates to develop their careers and move into advanced environmental occupations, such as Environmental Development Officers, Land Guardians, and even Chiefs of their own communities.
Increase diversity of your student intake, strengthen your connection between education and job readiness, and champion applied learning.

We’ve Partnered with Lakeland College to Support Indigenous Learners
Mal Dissanayake, PhD, P.Eng. and Dean-School of Environmental Sciences, declared:
“I am pleased to state that last month Lakeland College entered into an agreement with ECO Canada to provide Indigenous Communities further opportunities to develop technical skills in environmental sciences and foster exciting careers through the “Building Environmental Capacity within Indigenous Communities (BEAHR)” program of ECO Canada.
Providing pathways and support for Indigenous students is an ongoing priority for Lakeland College. In this context, these graduates who successfully complete the BEAHR programs will have the opportunity to enroll in Lakeland College Diploma programs in Environmental sciences. This will create a path for the students to seek undergraduate studies through the applied degree and diploma programs offered by the environmental sciences department, if the students wish to pursue formal post-secondary education.”
