Our Programs

A program's curriculum is critically analyzed against national occupational standards to ensure it meets environmental industry needs.    Our accredited School of Natural Environment programs include   :

  • Adventure Recreation and Parks Technician
  • Fish and Wildlife Technician Conservation
  • Forestry Technician - Conservation
  • Natural Environment Technician - Conservation and Management
  • Natural Resource/Environmental Law - Inspection and Enforcement. 

The accreditation process took approximately 18 months to complete.   Programming, supports, and services were examined, including a variety of aspects of the student experience from program policies and practices to student support and facilities.  The CEAC  and  site reviewers applauded the quality of our programs and the dedication of  faculty and staff.  We continue to prioritize    equipping our students with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience  needed to succeed in  natural environment and outdoors careers.

ECO Canada's accreditation is a clear endorsement of the quality and relevance of education that Sault College delivers. Our programs meet and exceed national standards and students receive a solid foundation for their future career in the field.  We remain committed to offering an exceptional educational experience. 

The programs have been accredited by the Environmental Careers Organization of Canada (ECO Canada)  based on conformance with the National Accreditation Standard for Post-secondary Environmental Programs. The accreditation has been granted through the Canadian Environmental Accreditation Commission (CEAC), an independent body that oversees ECO Canada’s post-secondary accreditation program.

Sault College’s new programs in Environmental Sustainability Analysis, Climate Change Mitigation and Urban Ecosystem Technician  hold Qualified Candidate Status with ECO Canada and are now completing the accreditation process. Accreditation decisions are anticipated to be made by the Canadian Environmental Accreditation Commission (CEAC) in the fall of 2024. Stay tuned for future announcements.
