Building Community Capacity in Indigenous Communities
December 12, 2019 | Podcast
Indigenous communities are increasingly playing an active role in Ontario's energy sector, taking advantage of policies and programs that allow communities to manage their energy and generate revenue in a way that is consistent with their cultural and environmental values.
On this episode, we sit down with Lucie Edwards, CEO Opiikapawiin Services LP (OSLP), to learn more about the important work her and OSLP are doing to support the Wataynikaneyap Transmission Project, which will connect remote Indigenous communities in NW Ontario to the power grid. We also sit down with the IESO’s Brett Smith, Senior Manager, First Nations and Métis Relations, to learn more about the IESO’s commitment to working with Indigenous communities to enable them to participate more fully in Ontario’s energy sector.
