Join The Community For Better Prospects

FNPA is the only North-American non-profit Indigenous owned and controlled organization developing power projects with Indigenous communities.

FNPA leverages project development expertise, network of industry experts, and technical advisors to develop projects resulting in increased economic benefits for First Nation communities.

FNPA Intro

Strategic Partnerships Initiative (SPI)

The SPI, led by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, supports Aboriginal participation in the economy, with a particular focus on the forestry, fisheries, mining, energy and agriculture sectors. SPI builds partnerships among federal departments, Aboriginal communities, provincial and territorial governments and the private sector to help Aboriginal Canadians take advantage of complex market-driven opportunities in key sectors of the economy.
