Description:The EVLC program curriculum is unique in that it offers a link between the study of ecology with the more traditional type of landscaping and horticulture programs. This overview of our entire ecosystem allows you to understand the impact humans can have on our natural environment and what measures can be taken to protect and/or restore natural landscapes. The demand by employers for skilled and committed graduates from programs such as EVLC is increasing greatly. As a graduate of ELVC, you’ll have a wide variety of career options with public organizations and private companies, or you may choose to start your own business. Our graduates leverage their ELVC diplomas to build interesting and exciting careers in landscape management.

This is a co–operative education program which formally integrates academic study with a semester of paid work experience in government operations and/or private companies. Following successful completion of your second academic semester, you’ll complete a 14–week work–term. You’ll receive pre–work– term orientation sessions, be monitored during the work–term, and, on completion, attend a debriefing session. The continuous length of the program is five semesters.
