Toronto-based Trillium Power Wind Corp. has completed a bilateral agreement with First Nations Technical Institute (FNTI) that will offer a wide range of training and educational opportunities to First Nations members.
Trillium Power and FNTI will work together with St. Lawrence College to train First Nations students in developing and maintaining offshore and onshore wind power facilities and help build Canada's emerging renewable energy sector.
‘We were approached by Trillium Power to become a founding partner of this unique training and placement program,’ says Karihwakeron Tim Thompson, president of FNTI. ‘We look forward to creating opportunities for First Nations people to support offshore wind development and being involved at the very beginning of a new era of green-collar manufacturing and service enterprises. Trillium Power has proven to be a committed partner in working with First Nations people and including us in their vision for sustainable economic development solutions in Ontario.’
