Building on the success of last year’s event, this two-day Symposium will move beyond community energy planning and implementation to building community capacity.
Energy plays a critical role in the economic, environmental and social wellbeing of Indigenous communities. This year’s Symposium will focus on building community capacity, with sessions on the IESO’s Community Energy Champion Program, project management, evaluating your community energy plan, transmission procurement, and energy-related certification options, among others.
The Symposium provides a unique opportunity for First Nation attendees to share ideas, experiences, learnings and expertise. Participants will also be able to build personal and organizational capacity, and explore opportunities for future collaboration.
