FNII can support Indigenous groups to develop a business case for their project. Examples of projects include:
Water and wastewater projects could include supply, treatment, storage and distribution systems for water, and collection, treatment, disposal and biosolids management facilities for wastewater. Systems could serve member households, community facilities, and economic development activities including commercial development or non-member residents.
Buildings and facilities could include space for First Nation government administration, space for health centres, nursing stations, treatment centres, education (schools), child and family services, recreation, and cultural uses.
Transportation improvement projects could include improved lighting and protection for pedestrians and other non-motorized vehicle users, as well as the widening, surfacing, or locating of additional structure upon any existing road. Improved stormwater management can address issues of erosion, localized flooding, and property damage.
Communications and connectivity could include increased access to broadband internet. With better connectivity, it will be possible to access improved health care, online learning, economic development programs and job training opportunities.
Community energy projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support a transition to clean energy. These projects can improve energy efficiency and enhance energy security. Examples of projects may include solar, wind, geothermal and hydro-generated energy distributed through the community.
