The Land and Water Resources (LWR) Diploma program prepares students to effectively conserve and repair disturbed land and riparian zones, as well as monitor water quality and quantity. The main focus of the program is reclamation of sites disturbed by industrial development and activity, and the regulations of reclaiming such sites as per the BC Oil and Gas Commission and relevant government bodies.

Employment opportunities are primarily concentrated in the oil and gas sector with some opportunities in mining, forestry, independent environmental consulting firms, First Nation band offices, and municipalities. As resource companies strive to meet government guidelines and industry best practices, this field of work will continue to grow across western Canada. Travel and field work are regular features of careers within this industry.
