SAIT, ANFCA partner to retrofit Friendship Centres, build awareness for climate action


The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology has partnered with the Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association on a multi-year retrofitting project that will lead to more energy efficient Friendship Centres around Alberta. The partners will also hold a series of summits, as well as educational, training, and engagement events to build awareness of the need for climate action. “This series of summits not only aim to bring awareness to the building retrofitting needs, but to create lasting connections between communities, industry, and professionals,” said SAIT Green Building Technologies Scientific Strategy Lead Melanie Ross. “It’s our hope that these relationships will provide lasting positive impacts beyond the project’s timeline, creating valuable building and retrofitting resources for Centres and the communities they support.”
