About Keepers of the Circle

Keepers of the Circle is an Indigenous Hub operated by the Temiskaming Native Women’s Support
Group (TNWSG), a non-profit organization founded in 1997 to promote the economic, cultural, and social
equity of Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse peoples.

About the Role
Keepers of the Circle is looking to recruit a summer student (4 months) for the position of a Land
Management Assistant.
In this role, you will gain hands-on skills and experience with land management
through the maintenance of Keepers of the Circle’s two food forests as well as restoring natural
ecosystems and infrastructure for one of our 18-acre sites to protect the natural environment. This site
was previously home to a youth detention centre and we are currently in the process of exploring
opportunities to rehabilitate this site and heal the lands before it will be used for programming.

As a Land Management Assistant, you will assist our team in revitalizing and restoring the 18-acre land
by assessing the existing site, building natural infrastructure, and conducting other land management
activities to preserve the existing ecosystems and conservation easement. Using an Indigenous approach
to land management, you will document activities to create a report that showcases the value and
process towards cultural rehabilitation. In this role, you will help with monitoring and maintaining Keepers
of the Circle’s two food forests and will be involved with the development of educational curriculum that
will be used for training programs. You will also gain the opportunity to collaborate with our Cultural Team
to develop on-the-land workshops and activities that will support healing and reconciliation.

This position is in-person and the selected candidate will be working at our Kirkland Lake site with
occasional visits to New Liskeard.
