The Environment Service started in 1996, one year after the creation of the OFNTSC. It first began as an environmental health study; the service quickly grew to also offer Earth Keepers Training, and the Energy Pathfinder Service. From the Environment Service’s quick growth, demand for service quickly grew to incorporate methods or protecting, managing, and conserving the land, water and air quality of First Nations.
