Humberview Secondary School

Specialist High Skills Major Program in Conservation & Sustainability

About Us

Our Mission

Humberview’s Specialist High Skills Major program in Conservation and Sustainability gives all students, vocational to university-bound, the opportunity to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge to transition as an informed and active citizen to post-secondary education or employment in the modern “green” economy.

Our Purpose

Specialist High Skills Majors let students focus on a career path that matches their skills and interests while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Students receive the SHSM seal on their diploma when they:

  • complete a specific bundle of 8-10 courses in the student's selected field 
  • earn valuable industry certifications including first aid and CPR qualifications
  • gain important skills on the job through cooperative education placements.

Our Program

As diverse as the students who participate, the program includes:

  • training and certifications such as GPS/GIS, Stream Assessment Protocol, animal and plant identification, and ORCKA Basic Canoeing
  • reach-ahead opportunities at various post-secondary destinations such as Fleming College, the University of Guelph, the Ontario Veterinary College, and Humber College
  • experiential activities such as Envirothon, Forest Connects, the Canadian Ecology Centre, and the Green Futures Conference.
