The National Aboriginal Land Managers Association’s mission is to actively network towards the enhancement of professional development and technical expertise in the functions of Lands Management. It is also dedicated to incorporating First Nations values and beliefs in Lands Management, always keeping in mind the grass-root practices when dealing with Lands Management. 

NALMA is focused on raising professional standards of Lands Management, with an emphasis on three areas:

  1. Technical Support to First Nations, individual Land Managers and government agencies
  2. Networking and Communications to facilitate knowledge sharing and to establish partnerships and strategic alliances across Canada
  3. Professional Development to provide training and build capacity as well as opportunities for First Nations Lands Managers.
