Title and Workplace

Program Director at Indigenous Clean Energy


Canmore, AB


Areas of Expertise

Program Participation

Ian is leading the implementation of Bringing It Home, a major initiative driving forward community-scale energy efficiency projects. He also leads the development of the ICE Network, ICE’s social platform for everyone working in the Indigenous clean energy space. Ian now also oversees ICE’s work on electric vehicles including the newly launched Charge Up program. When he’s not doing any of those things, you can find Ian outside on the trails or in the woodshop making furniture. Originally from Treaty 6 territory, he is now grateful to live and work in Treaty 7 territory under the shadow of Ehagay Nakoda, in Canmore, Alberta.

Why do you like mentoring with ICE?

I love problem-solving with people to figure out solutions that work for them and their community. It’s also exciting to see projects move forward and create meaningful impacts for communities and climate.

Who would you like to mentor with ICE?

Anyone working on energy efficiency efforts including new builds and, especially, retrofit work. Also, anyone interested in EVs though my expertise in that area isn’t that deep at this point.
