Are you passionate about the environment, culture, and heritage of the prairie forest? Are you interested in finding ways to bridge the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous persons, and to promote reconciliation? If so, then we want you to join our team as the Cultural and Environmental Heritage Prairie Forest Guide Smart Phone App Editor!
We are looking for an editor with a demonstrated ability to relate and apply knowledge of Aboriginal knowledge, culture, and ethical standards. The successful candidate will be working to develop interpretive stories for a mobile app that will provide outdoor education opportunities in a public park space. This app will be designed to honour the United Nations Decade on Indigenous Languages, and to provide meaningful, culturally-relevant information about the prairie forest’s history and current state.

The candidate must have a deep respect for Indigenous knowledge and culture, and must be able to work with diverse stakeholders to ensure the app is developed in a culturally-sensitive manner. They must be comfortable working with a team of designers, developers, and other professionals to ensure the app meets all objectives of interpretation of the rich heritage of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area and the George Genereux Urban Regional Park.
