Lynne Couves

Meet Lynne:

Lynne is the director of the Pembina Institute’s renewables in remote communities program, supporting the clean and equitable energy transition of remote communities in Canada. She is mixed blood Inuk, raised in the place known as Calgary, within the Treaty 7 territory of Southern Alberta and Métis Nation Region 3. 

Much of her career has been focused on coordinating and leading projects with Indigenous communities, focused on social and economic development and multistakeholder collaborations. This work experience led her to a deeper understanding of the importance of Indigenous sovereignty and further developed curiosities about the energy challenges faced locally and globally, including the vital role of Indigenous peoples in the transition to clean energy.

She holds a BA in communication and culture from the University of Calgary and is working on an MA in environmental education and communication through Royal Roads University. You will find her (re)creating in the fresh air, watercolour painting, beading, and spending time as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, niece, cousin, friend, community member, kin.
