Bird in Tree

The Resource Centre (RC) is committed to assist operational communities in identifying their priorities, needs, and work planning for successful implementation of their Land Code.

Under the Training, Mentoring and Professional Development (TMPD) strategy, the RC continues to develop and deliver fundamental and technical Lands Governance training under the Framework Agreement.


RC continues to work towards providing future training and Lands Governance capacity development under the Framework Agreement. Audiences will be advised as workshops and courses become available.

  • Information Workshops – these session are intended to deliver general information and updates on specific topics that are of interest to our managers, directors and communities.
  • Learning Workshops – where knowledge is directly delivered by selected experts in the subject matter field
  • Focus Groups – small targeted groups derived experienced FN participants that provide expertise towards a specific subject matter.

Online Courses

Online Courses are short courses that have been created on topics that are informed by the key functions of a Lands Governance Director or a Lands Manager operating under the FA. These courses also have a supporting Handbook and PowerPoint slide deck and supplemental resources that can be used in webinars and workshops. Courses are reviewed and updated periodically as laws and other content changes come into effect. There are presently approximately 40 online courses available, with several additional ones in development.

Land Governance Manual (LGM)

The LGM is a resource tool for Operational First Nations. It provides extensive documentation, process support and guidance. It is available electronically, in printer-friendly format for lands staff to print for reference as required. It plays a central role in the workshops and webinars and is regularly updated and refined based on First Nation successes, challenges and needs.

Knowledge Repository

A searchable repository of examples, cases, templates, recorded webinars and other tools is available to support Operational First Nations. The ability to host online courses and subsections of the LGM in a searchable, electronic manner is central to the design philosophy of the strategy. A website is being developed and other tools are being considered to allow for enhanced access to the repository.

Direct Community Support (1:1)

The RC staff are available to assist communities directly in identifying their priorities, needs, and work planning. If you are interested in this service we encourage you to contact us and we can set a time to discuss your needs and work to design specific workshops to provide capacity training for your community.
