Ontario to invest in green energy on First Nations communities
Ontario announced a $13 million investment in two initiatives to help Indigenous communities address climate change and support economic growth.
The province is providing $5 million from the Green Investment Fund to the Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources, in partnership with the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation.
This investment will help provide Indigenous communities with training, tools and infrastructure to address climate change.
Ontario is also committing $8 million to develop advanced microgrid solutions in First Nations communities.
These microgrid projects will support economic growth by reducing reliance on diesel fuel and enabling stable, predictable sources of power.
