The NAIT Boreal Research Institute (NBRI) is an applied research centre of NAIT and a partnership of industry, education and the community. NBRI is committed to the development of applied technologies that fill gaps and build industry capacity in ecological management. While our niche is anchored in our historic relationship with the forest industry, NBRI expanded in 2008 to address environmental and regulatory pressures for the reclamation of oil and gas wellsites in forest settings. NBRI's emerging topics include boreal plant systems, peatland restoration, plant and seed technologies, and tools to measure and mitigate forest fragmentation.
