Get Support for Your Program

The TST exists to help Indigenous Guardians and their teams tap into practical resources, knowledge, and connections to best do their work. Our support is led by Indigenous Guardian priorities and needs.

Indigenous Guardians are the experts - we are here to help.  

Looking for program support? The TST provides free, practical, and technical support that is tailored to meet the needs of Indigenous Guardians and program staff, including:

  • One-on-one calls to provide light-touch technical support and help Indigenous Guardians make the most of the Indigenous Guardians Toolkit.
  • Tailored workshops and conversations that support the on-the-ground work Indigenous Guardians and their teams are doing. Common topics include: program visioning and planning, governance structure, Indigenous Guardian workflow, tasks and operations, training and capacity building, safety procedures, policies, and checklists and data collection and monitoring.
