On the trails or the waterways, there’s plenty to explore on the horizon in the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (GBBR).

Last Thursday, March 29, Near North District students from west and east Parry Sound and North Bay explored some of the many career paths for jobs in the GBBR, a region stretching along Georgian Bay from the French River to Port Severn.
The daylong Biosphere Career Day held at the Bobby Orr Community Centre focused primarily on environmental careers and offered students and the general public a chance to meet with employers in this community.
Among those sectors represented at the 25 booths, were conservation and resource management, ecotourism and outdoor recreation, parks and protected areas, species at risk, environment technician and GIS, local food and agriculture, environment and health, government services and green construction and services.
The career day was a partnership supported by the Labour Market Group, the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, the Parry Sound Area Chamber of Commerce, Georgian Bay Country, Canadore College, the Near North District School Board and the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy.
