The Canadian government has launched a new program that will dole out up to $180 million to support Indigenous-owned and led renewable energy, energy efficiency, and low-carbon heating projects.
The Indigenous Leadership Fund was developed in collaboration with First Nations representatives, Inuit organizations, and Métis governments, Environment and Climate Change Canada said in a news release.
Up to $73.9 million will be available for First Nations-led projects through a continuous intake process that will be open until March 31, 2027. The Métis and Inuit funding will use a directed intake process, beginning this year and delivered over six years.
