First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund
The First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund (FNCEBF) promotes increased Aboriginal community participation in the clean energy sector within their asserted traditional territories and treaty areas.
The fund provides agreements between the Government of B.C. and successful applicants for Capacity funding and Equity funding. It also provides revenue sharing agreements between the Government of B.C. and eligible First Nations.
The Clean Energy Act enabled the creation of the First Nation Clean Energy Business Fund. The Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation is responsible for administering the fund and uses expertise across provincial government to assess applications.
