Indigenous Participation in Canada’s Energy Transition

This panel focuses on the role of Indigenous communities and stakeholders in Canada’s energy transition, with a specific focus on advancing their participation in Canada’s energy future.

It features two experts from across the Indigenous energy landscape. Topics for discussion include: the unique challenges and opportunities for Indigenous communities in Canada’s energy economy, the partnerships that are necessary to forward an inclusive energy agenda, and the steps that must be taken to ensure the meaningful involvement of Indigenous groups in Canada’s transition to a low carbon future.
