UFV’s 31-credit Geographic Information Systems (GIS) certificate provides you with the knowledge needed to work with geospatial data and technologies.

Making data come alive on a map can reveal patterns and trends that are key to making better decisions in government, business, and industry.

Choosing a site for a new building, zoning a neighborhood, finding out why crime happens at a particular location, or mapping the risk to water resources are all problems that can be solved using GIS.

The GIS certificate program is designed to provide you with the core concepts underlying the use of location-based GIS data as well as the essential software skills necessary for employment.

You can complete a GIS certificate as part of a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts, or take the credential on its own to enhance your employment opportunities in a variety of fields.


The proliferation in GIS throughout government, industry, and academia has resulted in an increase in the number of employment opportunities for those who are able to use GIS.

According to Statistics Canada, the number of job openings for people who gather, analyze, interpret and use geospatial information is expected to outnumber the number of job seekers in these fields by 2024.

A wide variety of sectors are using GIS to manage geographic information and incorporate location into decision-making. Some GIS jobs are discipline-specific — for example, jobs in environmental science, municipal planning, or forestry — with GIS skills only one part of the job qualifications needed to land the position. Other jobs require GIS users who are skilled in computer programming and database management.
