ECO Canada Profile of Canadian Environmental Employment September 2017

Survey / Report

The 2016 survey is the most recent in the ECO Canada Profile of Canadian Environmental Employment series, and follows 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, 1999 and 1993 publications. It marks a watershed moment and not the first course correction in the history of ECO Canada labour market research. Since 1993, ECO Canada’s understanding of what goes to make up “environmental employment” has shifted and evolved more than once based on experience and learning.

The Value of Strategic Mentorship in Park and Recreation Agencies

External Resource

The purpose of this study was to identify the benefits of a systematic mentorship programme using a recreational agency as the case study. Demographic information was used to understand the current state of recreation agencies and this resulted in utilising a systematic mentoring process to address a lack diversity and inclusion in their membership agencies and communities, with the intended purpose of improving the effectiveness of park and recreation agencies. An example of a systematic mentorship programme is a 3-person cohort programme that facilitates the exchange of knowledge and experience between each member of the cohort. The benefit of this mentorship approach is to engage in discussions to strategically address and provide recommendations related to diversity and inclusion.
