Faiza Salleh, Indigenous and Rural Partnership Lead
My name is Faiza Salleh and I am excited to introduce myself. I hold a degree in Biological Sciences and am currently pursuing my post-graduate degree in Nutrition. My passion for health and wellness, coupled with my love for community building, led me to explore opportunities to serve those in need.
I have spent most of my career working in the non-profit sector, specifically with marginalized communities. My goal is to create a sense of community wherever I go and to help those who need it most. Additionally, I teach restorative yoga and meditation on the weekends to help others cultivate their mental and emotional well-being.
I am thrilled to connect with all of you and look forward to sharing my experiences and insights with you. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me better

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.
