Métis Nation of Alberta

Energy and Climate Change Community Engagement Sessions – Métis Nation of Alberta

Dates: Various dates (March 2024)
Locations: In-person and online (see below for more details)

Do you work in the energy sector or have thoughts about the transition away from fossil fuels? All Citizens of the Otipemisiwak Métis Government are welcome for conversation about where our energy comes from, the changing climate and how we advocate for Métis needs. 

Traditional decision-making often overlooks the needs and interests of fossil fuel workers, Indigenous peoples, and our communities. These sessions aim to cut through the noise by engaging in discussions specific to the Citizens of the Otipemisiwak Métis Government.
