Three First Nations communities on B.C.’s coast will increase their clean-energy sector participation in local projects, thanks to funding from the Province.

The Province is partnering with communities throughout B.C. to develop Indigenous-driven energy projects that align with CleanBC, the Province’s plan to build a cleaner future and a stronger, more resilient economy.

Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale commented, “I have had the opportunity to learn from the Squamish Nation about the vision for and development of their Climate Action Strategy, and I am extremely excited for the community-led initiatives that will come out of it.
