The Center for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER)

About Us

CIER was founded in 1994 by a small group of First Nation leaders from across Canada who recognized the need to create their own technical, non-political, education and research-oriented organization that would assist Indigenous peoples to build their capacity to solve environmental problems affecting their lands and resources. We received federal non-profit corporate status in 1995, and became a registered charity in 2000 (charitable registration number 89367 8235 RR0001). Since our inception, we have worked on over 450 environment-focused projects with over 300 First Nations across Canada.
