Larry Bearss of Niagara and Mike Henderson from Penetanguishine retrofitting homes in the far north of Ontario.

Ontario Power Authority, Mushkegowuk Council and Mennonite Central Committee Ontario have teamed up to retrofit homes in the far north of Ontario, making them more efficient and cutting hydro costs for families on fixed incomes.

After a week of light installations, brightening the environments for a number of workplace settings, and building relationships in the remote fly-in community of Attawapiskat First Nation, Larry Bearss of Niagara, and Mike Henderson from Penetanguishine, both from BIC Church families, are at home again. 

Meegwetch and thank you to both of these amazing volunteers, for working as Master Electricians and doing their part to make very expensive electricity on the James Bay Coast more affordable for families and small businesses.
