Located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest on the Central Coast of British Columbia, the Kitasoo Xai’xais Nation (the “Nation”) has been a leader in conservation and human well-being. The Nation is embarking on a new chapter of its stewardship vision and requires an additional technical support to deliver on a multitude of programs. The Kitasoo Xai’xais Stewardship Authority (the “KXSA”) is the representative body of the Nation in matters related to land, marine, and cultural resource stewardship, and engagement with Crown governments and stakeholders. The primary goal of the Lead Field Technician will be to coordinate and implement field research activities whilst building capacity amongst KXSA staff. To achieve outcomes, this position will work with other KXSA program staff and contractors, Kitasoo Xai’xais Leadership and community members, and other levels of government and stakeholders with an interest in the Kitasoo Xai’xais territory.
