Climate Career Portal Launch
Iron & Earth is launching an exciting new platform, and we want you to be a part of it. Our mission as a worker-led, not for profit organization is to empower fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers to build and implement climate solutions.
On March 22, from 3:00-4:30 MST, we are hosting an online event to launch the Climate Career Portal, a first of its kind job portal within Canada.
The Climate Career Portal shows fossil fuel workers interested in a career transition how their skills can be applied to a wide range of careers in the net-zero economy. It charts clear career pathways for fossil fuel workers into climate careers such as in wind, solar, geothermal, electric vehicle production and more.

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.
We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.
We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
