ASKII Environmental Inc

Cara Sanders is a band member of the Curve Lake First Nation and has vast experience in environmental projects and Federal and Provincial environmental assessments (EA), responsibilities range from data collection to project management to report writing.  Cara completed the Catalyst 20/20 program in 2016 and has since followed her dream to work with First Nation communities in Ontario.  Cara presently has project in motion with four communities and has proposal out with six more Nations.  Of the ten Nation seven are remote, and seven are not part of the provincial grid (Pikangikum just got power in December 2018).  As a First Nation woman Cara believes strongly in supporting the needs of other First Nations and in protecting our Mother Earth.

For the past many years, I have been working very hard to build relationships with communities in Ontario and to help them with things that they want and need relating to energy.  The lessons learned and the people that I have met in the 20/20 program have empowered me to be able to achieve the things that I have.  But I believe this is only the beginning for me.  I believe there is so much more to learn and share being asked to be a mentor is such an honour to share what I have learned.
