In the article “Geothermal project in British Columbia, Canada plans to start drilling this year” written by Parker O’Halloran from ThinkGeoEnergy; talks about how after 7 years of exploration and permitting, Borealis Geopower is beginning the drilling process for their Canoe Reach project located in BC.
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.
We are grateful to the past, present and future stewards of this land.
