First Nations Renewable Energy Roadmap

Energy is a resource that every individual, community, business and government utilizes on a daily basis. However, choices with respect to energy production and its use are often based on short-term needs, rather than taking a holistic and sustainable look over longer timelines.

Access, cost and convenience have become the principal motivators of energy policy development within the world today, especially within First Nations communities. 

This roadmap is a resource that has been developed based on feedback within communities along the central/north coasts and Haida Gwaii. Therefore, this document is intended to provide communities with strategic information and linkages specific to renewable energy and the potential it has to support the values and traditions of First Nations communities.
