Cara Sanders is a band member of the Curve Lake First Nation and has experience with federal/provincial environmental projects and assessments. In 2016, Cara completed the 20/20 Catalysts Program, and she now serves as a member of the ICE Advisory Council. In 2018, Cara was awarded to CERRC bioheat projects that have grown to having a sawmill and winter wood program. For the past few years, she has been working very hard to build relationships with First Nations communities in Ontario and help them with things they want and need relating to energy.
As a First Nation woman, Cara believes strongly in supporting the needs of other First Nations communities and in protecting our Mother Earth. She is forever grateful for what she has learned in her professional endeavours, and as a Catalyst, she aims to share her knowledge through mentorship.
