Northern Geoscience Training Program
The Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office and Dalhousie University have established a Northern Geoscience Training Program. It aims to provide intensive hands-on training for Northerners that could help lead them to exciting careers in the public or private sectors. The program is comprised of two components: 1) a spring geological field school with Dalhousie University and 2) summer work experience with the CNGO. This annual program began in 2013 and has already provided training opportunities for 5 Inuit Beneficiaries and has included participation from the Yukon.
