Kuan Jian Foo, Renewable Skills Instructor

BComm  | REA

Kuan is a renewable energy and energy efficiency professional with over 16 years of experience developing and implementing energy solutions on the West Coast of BC.

His focus was first on bringing solar solutions to the coast before it became mainstream, developing renewable energy solutions through the cooperative sector and now contributing to reconciliation and empowerment through energy transitions for First Nations on diesel grids.

Kuan lives in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island with his partner and three children. He is passionate about running, movement training, electronic music and photography.

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.
