The forest, conservation, and parks sectors are exciting and growing fields. Plus, as one third of the forest workforce set to retire by 2030, many new opportunities will soon be opening up. Join us for our “Green Jobs are for Everyone” Workshop Series and Career Connections Fair as we brainstorm how to build a diverse and resilient Green Jobs workforce for the future.

The four half-day sessions and career fair (hosted between March 2–16) will be useful to all, including to those who may be facing additional barriers to employment. All the sessions will be supported by a live French interpreter.

Each session will include an introduction to Project Learning Tree Canada, professional development and training for youth and employers, speakers, and conversations that explore opportunities for mutual growth and support. For the final Career Connections and Networking Fair, participating employers and youth will have an opportunity to network and get to know one another.
