Abstract

Indigenous clean-energy leaders are moving Canada’s sustainable development agenda along at an impressive rate as well as setting the stage for the localization of goods and services.   Indigenous communities who have not yet had enough energy security should be the first recipients of green infrastructure investments to bolster equity as a tenet of Canadian nationalism.   A series of key policy drivers to amplify Indigenous inclusion in the energy transition are offered as well as a number of performance indicators that can determine the extent to which Canada is advancing on reconciliation and energy democracy.
