Kanaka Bar is on a path to self-sufficiency, which encompasses such areas as employment, food and energy. In addition to solar and small-scale hydroelectric development, the community is putting a lot of effort into renovating homes so that they use less energy and are more comfortable.

The Fraser Basin Council provided support for these projects through the First Nations Home EnergySave Program.

The incentives are funded by the Province of BC.

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.
