Canada: Reports explores First Nations' perspectives on co-ownership in renewable energy

The report highlights the increasing ownership and control of clean energy projects by Indigenous communities in Canada, while grappling with historical injustices and environmental impacts from past renewable energy projects, emphasizing the need for systemic change that centers Indigenous perspectives and participation in renewable energy initiatives. With involvement in more than 197 clean energy projects over one MW (as of 2021), Indigenous communities are the largest owner of clean energy assets in Canada after Crown and private utilities. The report highlights that where earlier projects may have offered minor benefits and agreements, Indigenous communities are increasingly seeking equity ownership and control in clean energy projects on their land. The report sets out six principles for upholding Indigenous rights and ensuring community benefits in the transition to clean renewable electricity.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the companies mentioned in the report in relation to allegations, Ontario Power Generation responded and BC Hydro responded, while Churchill Falls Labrador Corporation Limited and Manitoba Hydro did not. Ontario Power Generation’s and BC Hydro's full responses are available below.
