Condensed Solar Skills Program in La Ronge

Register now for our 2-day Community Solar Skills Program

Workers with solar panelsOn October 17th and 18th at the Jonas Roberts Memorial Community in La Ronge, Saskatchewan, Iron & Earth and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band will be presenting a Condensed Community Solar Skills Training Program.

Iron & Earth has been presenting our community-based rapid upskilling program since 2020 and are pleased to have the opportunity to work with the community in La Ronge on this latest project. It is part of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band's Community Energy Planning Project. Through this project, the Lac La Ronge Indian Band aims to create one Community Energy Plan for each of the 6 communities of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band to address the communities’ current and future energy needs.

We are currently accepting applications from community members based in the six communities of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band (Grandmother’s Bay, Hall Lake, La Ronge, Little Red River, Stanley Mission and Sucker River), community members in the surrounding areas, and from fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers with an interest in learning the skills needed to participate in solar energy project design, installation, and maintenance.
Thanks to the generous contributions of several funders, this two day Condensed Community Solar Skills program is available at no cost to participants.

The knowledge and experience provided by the Condensed Community Solar Skills Program will empower program participants to find and pursue meaningful work along related career pathways.

Please read the full course description and complete the Intake Form when you are ready to apply.


Iron & Earth’s training programs are funded in part by the Government of Canada's Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
