BEAHR in Your Community
Environmental Job Readiness Training for First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities
Local community participation is key for the delivery of all BEAHR courses
Our BEAHR Indigenous Training programs were established to increase the participation of Indigenous talent in the environmental sector. The environmental sector is growing quickly, and we strive to help First Nations, Metis and Inuit Communities across Canada develop their own local environmental champions.
BEAHR programs are designed to be flexible; we make sure they’re locally relevant to provide you with entry-level job opportunities in your area. The training programs range from 1 week to 16 weeks with graduates receiving a certificate of completion.

Communities and industry usually combine multiple courses together to build specialized skillsets among Indigenous youth to prepare them for various employment opportunities across many environmental sectors.
Some examples include specialized streams in environmental monitoring, land use planning, remediation/reclamation, climate change focused programming and more.
