North Caribou Lake First Nation, ON
David ran in a community election for a Councillor position a few years ago. While he didn’t win the election, his main platform was going for Renewable Energy as his community has been on a Connection Restriction since March 2014. Connection restriction stunts growth. Although he had no experience, a job opportunity was available as Energy Coordinator a month and a half after the election, which he applied to and got the position. David has a keen interest in Clean Renewable Energy and is passionate about having his community attain that. David’s other goal is to have minimal reliance on diesel in his community of North Caribou Lake First Nation. He wants to learn as much as he can so he can achieve that goal for his community. Presently, they are looking into an innovative project of acquiring Housing to stand alone and rely solely on Renewable Energy. David is also the Community Worker for the Remote Electrification Readiness Program for the Wataynikineyap Power transmission project.
