Stacy Bruce, A.Ag.
Stacy recently joined BCIA as a member this summer.
Areas of Practice and Expertise
Natural Resource and Forest Management, Regulatory support and consultation, Education, teaching and extension.
Why did I choose this career?
I love combining the operational and strategic aspects of natural resource management and am very interested in consulting with First Nations.
Why did you become a member of BCIA?
I wanted to be recognized as a person that is integrated into all aspects of natural resource management, something that a BCIA certification does provide its members.
What do you do in a typical work day or week?
My week involves participating in several cross agency working groups and projects centered around consulting with First Nations in the Natural Resource Sector (NRS). I analyze and develop policies, guidelines and provide training to governmental staff for consultation. I also provide support and assistance to consultation staff to ensure that they have the knowledge and tools they need to carry out consultation in the field. I also engage, provide guidance and assistance around engaging and consulting with First Nations to industries involved in the NRS.
Share some interesting "perks" and / or experiences of your job.
The excellent training received as part of the job: Avalanche survival, Bear Encounters, Wildfire Management Training, ATV driving certification, Archaeology and Cultural Heritage training are just some of these. As well, getting out in the field, meeting with First Nations and people involved in the NRS and of course getting to experience and see the amazing natural beauty of BC are always great best perks!
