Land Stewardship Planner

Reports to: TSI Chair and Director of Lands

Job Duration: Two Years Full Time

Summary: The Tahltan Central Government is seeking a TLSP Land Stewardship Planner with project management experience to shepherd the Tahltan Land Stewardship Plan (TLSP) to success through initiation, planning, execution, monitoring and controlling and project closure. The TLSP is part of the Tahltan Stewardship Initiative (TSI) which has the following vision:

“The Tahltan Nation will fulfill its inherent stewardship responsibilities for all lands, water, wildlife, fish and natural resources in Tahltan Territory.”

Stewardship is the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care. The TSI will help the Tahltan Nation to plan and manage our land, water, wildlife, and natural resources. It will ensure we take care of our territory now and for future generations by conserving wildlife, managing economic development, protecting our environment and relationship with the land (including culturally significant areas), and asserting jurisdiction over our Territory by furthering our role in and refining shared decision-making processes.

One of the key strategies of the TSI is to ensure lands, water, wildlife, fish, and natural resource management decisions are made based on Tahltan knowledge and worldview, local knowledge, and science. For this reason, we are seeking a Land Stewardship Planner to support our land stewardship process.
