Indigenous Relations

We work closely with First Nations across B.C.

Stretching from the Peace Region, to the Kootenays, to Vancouver Island, our electricity system delivers power to over four million customers who call B.C. home. With generating stations and power lines across the province, we impact the lives and interests of First Nations communities.

Here's how we engage to understand and minimize those impacts:

  • We engage with First Nations communities early on in the process around new projects
  • We seek to understand the community's interests from local leaders and community members
  • We match community members with career and training opportunities and get local businesses involved in delivering goods and services.
