The Indigenous Clean Energy Social Enterprise … catalyzing collaboration
The Indigenous Clean Energy (ICE) Social Enterprise is a pan-Canadian not-for-profit platform which advances Indigenous inclusion in Canada’s energy futures economy through Indigenous leadership, and broad-based collaboration with energy companies, utilities, governments, development firms, cleantech innovators, academic sector, and capital markets.
Our Mission is to stimulate collaboration that facilitates leadership by, and meaningful collaboration with, Indigenous peoples in the transition to a clean energy future.
This drives us towards our vision of a collaborative, community-driven clean energy future respects the rights of Indigenous peoples and enriches their communities.
The ICE Social Enterprise achieves impact through its three programs:
- 20/20 Catalysts Program – the national clean energy capacity building program for Indigenous individuals from communities and organizations across Canada.
- The ICE Network – a collaborative space for people working to advance Indigenous clean energy projects and Indigenous participation in the clean energy sector.
- The Global Hub – an international initiative to build connections, share learnings, and promote cooperation among Indigenous groups globally.
The ICE Social Enterprise is guided by an Indigenous Advisory Council which provides oversight and input to ensure programming brings the maximum about of benefits to Indigenous peoples.
