Environmental Management

Environmental management includes impact assessment, but also involves other strategies and tools, such as adaptive management, risk assessment, environmental site audits, assessments, remediation and conflict resolution.

The objectives of the Certificate in Environmental Management program are to develop an understanding of the basic premises, theories and practices associated with environmental management and to provide an insight into the systems approach which can be employed to mitigate a wide range of environmental problems.

The certificate is designed to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and methodologies of environmental management with a detailed deconstruction of Canadian issues.

Grounded in a holistic approach to sustainable development, the certificate program aims to develop strategic, consensual, and inclusive solutions to resource and environmental management case studies which may include: Globalization, climate change, water security, fisheries, agriculture, forestry, wildlife, parks, minerals, and/or waste management. The program also raises awareness of the complexity of risk management in addressing health, economics and environmental conservation.

The Certificate Program is comprised of four courses:
