Program Overview

Do you love being outside and working with plants, animals and the natural environment? Come to Sault College in the heart of the Algoma forest and be part of our nationally recognised fish and wildlife program.

The two-year Fish and Wildlife Conservation Technician program provides the graduate with a broad background in natural resources and specialized skills in the fish and wildlife field. Extensive fieldwork is carried out regularly and annual field camps are part of the program. Students develop skills and knowledge about fisheries and wildlife management and perform field and lab surveys. A number of courses provide insight into integrated resource management techniques that consider forests and recreational lands as multi value natural resources that provide a broad array of benefits.

Letting nature be your teacher is what the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Technician Program is all about! Sault Ste. Marie is located in the heart of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence mixed forest with ready access to the boreal forest to the north. Numerous streams, lakes, and rivers with both warm water and cold water populations are located within easy travel distance. As well as being home to the Great Lakes Forestry Centre, the Ontario Forest Research Institute, and the Forest Pest Management Institute, Sault Ste. Marie is the centre of many fish and wildlife management projects. A provincial fish hatchery, four district area offices of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, an acid precipitation field station, and the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve are all located in the area.

While you`ll spend time in traditional classroom settings with lectures and labs to introduce theoretical material, much of your time will be spent outside seeing wildlife resources and practicing the skills you`ll be learning.

Students may have the opportunity to be involved in applied research projects. Please see the `Applied Research Centre` section for more information relating to the Sault College Applied Research Centre.

Co-operative Education (Co-op)
Co-operative Education (Co-op) provides opportunities for you to learn beyond your classroom as you integrate relevant work experiences into your academic studies. Co-op also lets you further develop life and employment skills while earning money. You can also get a better idea of the career options available to you and build your network of contacts for future employment. Many employers prefer hiring co-op grads because of the applied learning they receive. We will prepare you for your summer work term and employment upon graduation.

Scholarships, Bursaries And Awards

The Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards program exists to recognize academic achievement and inspire students to pursue their educational goals while reducing financial obstacles along the way. 

Full-time students attending Sault College, including our Toronto and Brampton campuses, are eligible to apply for a variety of scholarships, awards, and bursaries. Scholarships are normally awarded on the basis of academic achievement. To be considered for scholarships, a student must be maintaining a minimum 3.0 accumulated GPA. Bursaries are awarded primarily on the basis of financial need. Awards are usually awarded on the basis of both financial need and academic performance. All scholarships and awards are intended to encourage a high standard of academic and personal achievement.

The Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards Application will be available on the Student Portal under "My Records" in October of each year. The application must be completed and submitted no later than the deadline noted. While the College reserves the right to make awards to students who have not applied, no student who has applied may claim any right of consideration by the College. One on-line application for College scholarships, bursaries and awards is usually all that is required for consideration for any available award. However, there are a small number of awards that require additional information to be submitted and will be identified on the online application. Liability will be assumed by the College for the payment of scholarships, bursaries and awards only to the extent that expected gifts from donors or returns from particular investments of endowed funds are realized. Sault College reserves the right to make required changes, including cancellation of some awards.
