Faculty of Natural Resources Management

Message from the Dean:
Welcome to the Faculty of Natural Resources Management. Our professional programs are designed to offer a balanced view of sustainable ecosystem management with regard to the many social, economic, and environmental challenges which face us now and into the future. While we are located in the midst of Canada's vast boreal forest, we are also cognisant of the need to make our students and future resource practitioners aware of stewardship on a global scale.

What is Natural Resources Management?

Natural resources management is the stewardship of both public and private (mainly) forested landscapes, with the intention of reaching a balance between ecological sustainability, economic viability, and societal acceptance of prescribed land use. It employs a scientific approach, using a foundation of ecological health, best business practices, professional ethics, traditional values, transparency and public participation.

Interested in Natural Resources Management?

The primary objective of the Faculty of Natural Resources Management is to advance the practice of natural resources management in Canada by producing skilled and educated foresters and environmental managers who have the desire to manage forests and forested landscapes for the benefit of both society and the natural environment.
