Resource Technician, Park Warden (Current Employee) – Grand Bend, ON – 4 October 2018
A typical day as a Resource Technician/ Park Warden in one of the busiest enforcement parks in Ontario would be protection, maintaining the environmental integrity of the ecosystem within the park system and ensure the people visiting the park are safe and secure and enjoy the natural resources for future generations. I have learned for this job the ability to think quick on my feet and deal with almost every kind of situation in any environment. The hardest part of the job would be the schedule, management looks at the shifts being covered and not that a person has worked a particular shift all summer or for 10 days straight. Best part of the job is making people happy after they have had a bad experience.

Great work environment and culture, and for the most part staff are passionate about their jobs. Working for the ministry allows you to have an impact on how natural resources are managed in the province.
Park Ranger (Former Employee) – Red Lake, ON – 26 March 2018
Park Staff are very friendly and are willing to help anyone( Tourist, customers, other staff). The manager is very friendly and I can't say that I have had any problems working there at all. If I could I would work there again.
Great pay, amazing experience and a lot of job skills that you can gain.
Work environment and conditions (on trips into park it tends to get wet alot).

Resource Technician 2 ( Crew Boss) (Current Employee) – Dryden, ON – 21 October 2017
The MNR is a great place to work. There is always a friendly atmosphere at work and everyone is happy to be there for the most part. It is an awesome gig, not too many other jobs involve climbing out of helicopters to fight fire.
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Vernon, BC – 12 June 2017
It was average for a small office receiption position. Nothing was too hectic or stressful. I learned about the internal process within the BC Government. The work culture was difficult for the reason that there were both full time staff and seasonal staff.
Acting Lands and Water Technical Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Frances, ON – 26 February 2017
You work as a unit with the MNRF, it offers a great learning environment where questions are always welcome. There are always challenges to face, whether it is with respect to the difficulty of a project or working with the public, but you can always rely of your colleagues to help.
Ministry of Environment Stewardship Youth Ranger (Former Employee) – Aurora, ON – 29 September 2016
I enjoyed not working the same place every day or doing the same things. I find it is more enjoyable to go to different areas, meet different people, and solve different problems. I like problem solving and collaboration, which both were very present in the work we took part in.
