2019 First Nations Energy Symposium
Energy plays a critical role in the economic, environmental and social wellbeing of Indigenous communities. The 2019 Symposium focused on building community capacity, with sessions on the IESO’s Community Energy Champion Program, project management, evaluating community energy plans, transmission procurement, and energy-related certification options, among others.
The Symposium provided a unique opportunity for First Nation attendees to share ideas, experiences, learnings and expertise, as well as build personal and organizational capacity, and explore opportunities for future collaboration.
