The company leading green energy in Canada is applauding the new federal budget.

EverWind Fuels says the new budget will put together measures to help solidify Canada as a world-leading provider of clean energy and will help support projects that create skills, jobs and economic growth.

CEO Trent Vichie says, “Today’s budget will help Canadian clean energy projects secure the coveted first-mover advantagein a global industry that is fiercely competitive. The global green energy hubs of tomorrow are being determined today. Off-takers, investors, and equipment suppliers are looking at jurisdictions and projects around the world, and Budget 2023 sends a clearsignal that they should choose Canadian projects. We look forward to working with the Government of Canada to develop the Canada Growth Fund which in combination with other Budget 2023 measures will secure Canada’s status as a leading provider of clean energy globally and ensure a clear path towards net zero and energy security.”

Everwind, also recognizes the Government of Canada’s commitment to increase opportunities for Indigenous communities to participate as partners in major projects.

“As Equity Partners in the EverWind Point Tupper Clean Energy Project, Mi’kmaw have an opportunity to directly influence and benefit from the transition to net zero. Reconciliation through meaningful participation in resource development requires concrete actions which can only be realized when Indigenous peoples have a seat at the table, like we have with EverWind. I look forward to learning more about the programs introduced in Budget 2023 that will support Indigenous participation through direct investment in clean energy projects throughout Canada.”
