This division chairs the Regional Management Committees and Indigenous Forums throughout the province ensuring alignment between provincial and regional priorities.

Reporting to a program lead in LUPCE, the Land and Resource Coordinator (LRC) supports the development of management solutions to complex water, land, and resource stewardship issues and facilitates the implementation of initiatives that require working with diverse teams and cross-sector coordination.
