Many Indigenous, rural and remote communities use diesel or fossil fuels for heat and power. Diesel is a well-known and reliable energy source, however, it can also impact communities and the environment. The transition to clean energy continues to be important to Indigenous communities and the Government of Canada as we work together towards reconciliation.An additional $300 million is available until 2027 for your clean energy projects. These projects can help advance Indigenous-led climate action, support local economic development and create skilled jobs while reducing pollution and improving air quality.
