Iron & Earth East
Iron & Earth East is the Atlantic Canadian chapter of our organization, headquartered in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Canada's east coast offers some of the greatest renewable energy resources in North America. While some progress is being made, we have a long way yet to go in developing this resource and building our work force to its full potential. With recent successes, such as the implementation of a net-metering program in Newfoundland, we are energized to keep the momentum going. Iron & Earth East is launching a number of green energy initiatives to showcase the provinces renewable energy resources, including the 365 Greenhouse, the first Atlantic Canadian Solar Skills project, and the province-wide Speaker Series. If you live in one of the other Atlantic provinces and would be interested in bringing green energy jobs to your tradespeople please get in touch with us!
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.
