PLT Canada Annual Reports

Project Learning Tree Canada (PLT Canada) is committed to advancing environmental education, forest literacy, and career pathways, using trees and forests as windows on the world. Our award-winning resources offer a lifetime of learning from early childhood through adulthood. Our wide and diverse network provides professional development for educators and opportunities for young people to explore nature and the diversity of green careers in the forest and conservation sector. Together, we are growing future forest and conservation leaders. Thank you to the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Skills Strategy for financial support that meaningfully impacts young Canadians and young adults facing barriers.

Growing Future Forest & Conservation Leaders - 2019 report

Among our many accomplishments, we have placed over 2,000 youth into Green Jobs since 2018, thanks in part to funding by the Government of Canada and employers across the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) and Canadian Parks Council (CPC) networks. We have also achieved great diversity in our Green Jobs placements, including year-over-year gender balance, jobs for Indigenous youth and jobs for rural youth. We also continued to inspire youth across the country. Our Green Ride for Green Jobs campaign involved a cross-Canada journey on a wooden bike where we met 230 Green Jobs youth and over 50 employers.
