The Aboriginal Environmental Services Network (AESN) is a coordinated approach for Indigenous involvement in the environmental services sector. AESN was established to fulfill a community, government and industry need for skilled people, available locally, to conduct environmental monitoring, wildlife surveys, traditional land use studies, vegetation management, climate change adaptation activities and reclamation. This approach is in line with the spirit of the recent “Calls to Action” released by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, as well as the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Our goal is for the AESN to be a hub for management, communication, resource sharing and promotion of Indigenous participation in the delivery of environmental services. The network was conceived of, and is managed by InnoTech Alberta and its partners.
Why did InnoTech Alberta establish the Aboriginal Environmental Services Network?
InnoTech Alberta has an innovation mandate. Innovation is the conversion of knowledge into economic or social value. InnoTech Alberta established the Aboriginal Environmental Services Network in hopes that Indigenous communities can use the knowledge shared within the network to create economic or social value.
The Aboriginal Environmental Services Network developed by InnoTech Alberta can assist communities, government, industry, businesses and individuals to meet their targets for Indigenous involvement in the environmental services sector. Whether your query relates to training, technology or other resources, we will do our best to assist you in-house, or direct you to someone who can.
