group-sessionPeople from Indigenous communities across Canada are in Wakefield, Que., this week to learn about ways to develop renewable energy projects in their territories.

They’re taking part in an initiative called the 20/20 Catalysts Program, developed by Lumos Clean Energy Advisors and the Aboriginal Human Resources Council.

“They’re learning from mentors — Indigenous leaders who’ve done clean energy projects from around the country, and experts who are in clean energy,” said Chris Henderson, president of Lumos.

“So they learn how to develop projects, do community consultation, how to employ people, how to finance projects.”
