RCI Mentorship

“In a real sense, mentorship has saved us time and money and will improve the quality of the [micro-hydro] project.”

— Gitga’at First Nation

The Remote Community Implementation Program coordinates community-to-community mentorships to help remote communities in BC that are new to the development of clean energy projects.

A community that has gained experience in clean energy projects can share lessons through mentorship. It’s a practical opportunity to reduce BC’s dependence on fossil fuel, cut energy costs and emissions, and advance local sustainability goals.

Mentors gain excellent exposure as innovators and leaders. They also have the satisfaction of knowing they have been of service to another community. One of our mentorship initiatives focused on solar energy — read about it!

If you would like to join the mentoring network, or be considered for services, please contact Jim Vanderwal.

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.
