The PLMA Program at the Haskayne School of Business was established in 1984 through the initiative and financial support of industry and CAPL (Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen). Haskayne offers the only Petroleum Land Management concentration in Canada and is one of five programs in the world.
Despite its specialization focus and high success rate, the program is experiencing a chronic funding shortage. The Committee’s goal is to raise $1.0 million to add to the current PLM Endowment Fund. We anticipate that this will be matched by the Alberta government’s Access to the Future Fund. Collectively the $2.0 million added to the Endowment Fund will generate an additional $100,000 per year in perpetuity. This will provide a healthy annual stipend towards the expenses, meeting the annual cost of sustaining the program.

The Mentorship Committee has taken great strides in assisting many university students enrolled in the Petroleum Land Management Program at the University of Calgary to assist these aspiring young Landmen to get their "foot in the door". This program which sees PLM students being mentored by experience Landmen in real working environments has allowed many of the students to find full time positions in the business, often with the mentor's company. All CAPL members should consider donating their time to share their knowledge and experience by mentoring a PLM student - you'll be amazed at what you can learn!
