Position: North Coast Cumulative Effects Program Salmon Value Lead
Organization: North Coast Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society
Location: Prince Rupert, BC
The North Coast-Skeena First Nations Stewardship Society (NCSFNSS) is a non-profit society that enables First Nations communities on the British Columbia North Coast and lower Skeena River to collaborate on projects of shared value. The current focus addresses marine and coastal environmental issues and processes as they relate to fisheries and cumulative effects.
Taking direction from the Program Director of Cumulative Effects Strategic Initiatives, the Salmon Value Lead will support the North Coast Cumulative Effects Project Team (NC CE Project Team) to advance cumulative effects monitoring, assessment and management of salmon priorities. This will be completed through close collaboration between the participating North Coast Nations, the Province of British Columbia, and the Federal government, in support of initiatives such as the North Coast Marine Planning Partnership (MaPP) & Environmental Stewardship Initiative (ESI). A particular focus of this work is to understand and manage cumulative effects on salmon and salmon habitat. Additional background and context can be further provided upon request.
This position offers an excellent opportunity for a candidate with knowledge and interest in addressing complex resource management issues to advance their career in fisheries biology/resource management.
This is a one-year full-time position (35 hours per week) with the possibility of extension subject to funding availability.
The Salmon Value Lead is expected to function as a key NC CE Project Team member, as well as the lead of the Salmon Technical Sub-group to develop and implement workplans in order to achieve the deliverables under the program. Given the alignment of tasks outlined under the Salmon Value workplan with the key activities leading to the development of a Skeena Estuary Habitat Management and Protection Plan (SEHMPP), it is envisioned that the Salmon Value Lead will work in close collaboration with the project team leads for the Estuary Value.
