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, Mentorship 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 First Nation 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, Lands Manager or other Lands related staff operating under the Framework Agreement. These courses also have a supporting Workbook, presentation and supplemental resources that can be used in webinars, workshops and individual learning. Courses are reviewed and updated periodically as laws and other content changes come into effect. There are presently over 50 online courses available, with several additional ones in development.

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 sub sections of the LGM in a searchable, electronic manner is central to the design philosophy of the strategy. Our website is being implemented, along with other tools being considered, to allow for enhanced access to the repository.
