Online Courses

Online Courses are short courses that have been created on topics 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 which can be accessed through our Online Course Catalogue.

Once your individual or land governance office training goals have been defined, we can further assist you with a training needs assessment which will identify land governance categories of interest, highlight key focus areas within each category, and determine individual learning objectives that will assist with the development of an Individual Training Plan.

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 through a web-based App format for Lands staff to 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. Visit LGM – A Guide to Land Governance for access.

Knowledge Repository

The ability to host a searchable electronic knowledge repository of land governance examples, cases, templates, and other resource tools to support Operational First Nations is central to the design philosophy of the TMPD strategy. Our website continues to be implemented on an ongoing basis, along with other tools being considered, to allow for enhanced access points to the Resources & Knowledge Sharing repository.
