2023 Elizabeth Henry Scholarship Recipients!

Meet this year's recipients!

Xeni Gwet’in Community Electrification

Xeni Gwet'in Community Electrification

Xeni Gwet'in, a community in the remote Nemiah Valley, relies on a micro-grid system that is powered by a hybrid diesel generator set, 250 kW photovoltaic solar array and 1 MW a lithium-ion battery storage system. The system did not reach all community homes, however, until a recently completed project bridged that gap. This was done by laying an underground electrical distribution line to tie a more distant group of homes — previously powered by individual gas and diesel generators — into the micro-grid system.

Read about it in a new project profile — one of the initiatives of the Renewable Energy for Remote Communities program.

Salmon-Safe Certification of Hue


Congratulations to Marcon for achieving Salmon-Safe BC certification of its new condominium development “Hue” in Port Moody! The site borders School House Creek, home to both salmon and trout, so protection and conservation of the local ecosystem is important to everyone in the community. Learn more.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
