Donate - Stand with oil sands workers calling for renewable energy

Build a Canada that works now and in the future

Every dollar you donate is directed to realizing a renewable energy future for Canada's skilled workers. Our vision is of a world-class workforce ready to succeed in using the latest clean energy technologies. To make that happen, Iron & Earth works with renewable energy stakeholders, gathers and synthesizes research, identifies training gaps, develops training programs, and helps members build teams with one another.

By contributing today, you'll help us develop regional chapters of skilled tradespeople who are actively building a more sustainable future in their communities by applying their own local renewable energy solutions. You'll help us bust the myth that oilsands workers don't care about the environment. You'll help us make our vision, our brand, and your powerful stories as hot of a topic as oil prices and pipelines.

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.
