Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER)

Presentation of the Organization

CIER is a national, First Nation-directed environmental non-profit organisation. It was founded in 1994 by a small group of First Nation leaders from across Canada who recognised the need for Aboriginal peoples to have the capacity to solve environmental problems affecting their lands and resources.

CIER develops and implements sustainable solutions to proactively address environmental issues affecting First Nations lands and resources. It approaches all of its efforts using an integrated approach that combines multiple perspectives and fosters collaborative relationships. CIER notably works in the field of water protection.
