Why: The First Nations Energy Education Exchange (FN-EEE) is the evolution of the First Nations Electricity Report developed by the Chiefs of Ontario last year. The goal is to share elements of the report, facilitate knowledge exchange between First Nations and inform a suite of capacity building tools for energy development that will enable communities to move forward with their desired projects. The tools will be developed and shared through the course of this project.
