Borealis GeoPower's recent win with the BC Oil and Gas Commission for the first geothermal resource well authorization in BC for the Canoe Reach project has been featured on Business In Vancouver's recent news article entitled "Geothermal energy project gets drilling permit." The article also discusses Borealis' next steps, stating: "Now that the company has its permits in hand, Borealis CEO Alison Thompson said she expected drilling to begin "within days." The first phase of the project would not actually be geothermal energy production, but a hotsprings that the Valemount Geothermal Society hopes to develop."
Borealis GeoPower is headquartered in Moh’kins’tsis, the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) name for the place we now call Calgary, located in the Treaty 7 region and the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (including the Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
BOREALIS GEOPOWER has operations on the traditional, unceded territory of the people of the kitselas First Nation. the kitselas people are part of the larger tsimshian nation whose traditional language is sm'algyax. kitselas means "people of the canyon" in sm'algyax. the kitselas First Nation has been archaeologically documented to occupy the kitselas canyon, east of terrace (british columbia) on the skeena river, for at least 5000 years.
