Meeting : Future of Energy – Quebec and First Nations

When: December 4th and 5th, 2013

Where: Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations

On December 4th and 5th 2013, the FNQLSDI organized a meeting between the First Nations from Quebec and commissioners having worked at the Commission sur les enjeux énergétiques du Québec (Fall 2013). Even if it was not an official consultation, representatives from 8 Nations were presents, including some community chiefs.

The meeting permitted to raise some observations and issues about the situation of Energy in First Nations’ communities of Quebec. It also permitted to raise some communication issues which are having an effect on relations between the Quebec Government and First Nations.

Preliminary program

December 4, 2013: Discussion among First Nations on the important elements to address with the commissioners and the taking of a common position (if possible).

December 5, 2013: Meeting day with the commissioners during which the targeted orientations of the previous day will be addressed.

The FNQLSDI is pleased of the rigour and precision of the remarks made in the commissioners report following the meeting.
