Canada’s minister of Natural Resources, Amarjeet Sohi, announced a $589,629 (€518,599) investment in three Indigenous projects in British Columbia to create jobs and boost local economies. The release was published on news outlet Cision.
Two of these investments will be utilised to research the possibility of using biomass to heat and power local Indigenous communities.
$475,000 will be distributed to Indigenous environmental consulting company Chu Cho Environmental to assess the feasibility of using biomass to generate heat and power. According to the release this will be the first project of its kind to heat and power an Indigenous community in the region once completed.
