ABORIGINAL PEOPLES AND FORESTRY

With their strong connection to the natural world, Aboriginal Peoples have an important place in the future of forestry. There are many opportunities available for even greater inclusion of Aboriginal Peoples in the vast wealth of our forestry sector.

If you are a young aboriginal considering your future, the forestry sector has much to offer. You can be assured of an inclusive, welcoming career path where your input and skills will be valued.
