Board of Directors
Terri Lynn is the newest member of the team at Indigenous Clean Energy. A Mi’gmaq from Listuguj, Quebec, Terri Lynn focuses on building relationships with key partners to help amplify the impact of Indigenous clean energy in Canada.
She brings 20 years of experience working for Indigenous communities, prior to joining ICE in 2019, she worked for the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government and, the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi Secretariat (MMS), in Quebec.
Her experience in clean energy began in 2009, when she was hired as the Project Director of the Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n (MIU) wind farm. The MU is a 50-50 partnership between three Mi’gmaq communities of Gesgapegiag, Gespeg and Listuguj and their partner, Innergex. MU is the first wind farm developed jointly with First Nations in the Gaspé Peninsula. The project represents a concrete opportunity for the region, providing local financial benefits and employment creation for the Mi’gmaq communities.
She was recognized during the Quebec Wind Energy Conference as a Rising Star for her significant contribution in fostering social acceptability for the project. Ms. Morrison shared her rallying vision with the Mi’gmaq communities and managed the process leading to the hiring of 116 Mi’gmaq workers during construction, the project also received the Excellence in Human Resources Award for this unprecedented success at the same event, and recently won the Wind Energy Project award at CanWEA in 2019.
Terri Lynn looks forward to empowering Indigenous communities across Canada who are working towards reconciliation through clean energy projects with her role at Indigenous Clean Energy.
