First Nation Collaboration

CoreGeo is committed to building relationships with local First Nation communities and Indigenous peoples to aid in the protection of their natural environment and culture, increase their participation in, and support indigenous led, regulatory and licensing endeavors and encourage an increase in benefits from projects occurring on their land.

CoreGeo is involved with First Nations training and mentorship through numerous other projects, including the participation as guest instructors in the Yukon College Environmental Monitoring Program and with mentorship of First Nation environmental scientists working in the mining industry. Capacity building in local communities is at the center of many of our projects.
