What is the Education and Capacity Building Program?
The Education and Capacity Building (ECB) Program provides funding to support awareness, education, skills, and capacity building initiatives. The program helps prepare First Nation and Métis communities and organizations to take advantage of opportunities to contribute to cleaner, more reliable and more affordable energy systems.
This program includes four areas of focus:
community capacity-building initiatives;
skill building and project-readiness training; and
innovative projects and initiatives relating to the ECB Program objective.
