Advantages of Earning a Specialist High Skills Major in ENVIRONMENT

altCanada is the second largest country in the world, with an area of almost 10 million square kilometers. Although rich in natural resources, we are facing many issues related to the environment, including global warming, species at risk, air and water quality concerns, and resource depletion. Employment in the environment sector has boomed in recent years and existing labour shortages in this sector are only expected to increase as regulations to meet Canada’s goals regarding climate change, endangered species and source water protection among others, come into effect. The SHSM Environment provides a wide variety of environment-based activities and research, as well as sector-specific certifications, directly related to careers in the environmental field.
