Ottawa funds Gitxsan bioheat project in Hazelton

The federal government is providing $686,000 in funding for an Indigenous bioheat project in Hazelton.

Gitxsan Energy Inc., a Gitxsan Nation-owned business, will use the money for a forest-based biomass heating for the Upper Skeena Recreational Centre.

The biomass will replace propane as the heating fuel and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 255 tonnes a year.

The project will create two full-time biomass harvesting jobs and 12 temporary construction jobs in the local Gitxsan community.

Funding for the project is the first outlay from the Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities Program and was announced by Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi.
