Details on E3 Lithium’s Stakeholder Engagement, including pertinent information on the project and the availability to meet the company locally, will be updated here. This page will continue to evolve as E3 Lithium continuously engages, please check back often for news and updates.

Stakeholder Engagement:

E3 Lithium prioritizes its relationships with the local communities that it operates in and will continue to work hard to gain trust and foster meaningful dialogue. E3 Lithium values the feedback from local communities in close proximity to our planned operations and is planning a robust public engagement and outreach program for the Clearwater Project. Initial municipal engagement will begin with counties at or in proximity to the Project, including Mountain View County, Kneehill County and Red Deer County. As the project progresses final locations are determined, engagement will broaden to include towns and villages in proximity to the project, including Torrington, Olds, Carstairs, Didsbury, Innisfail, Red Deer, Trochu and Three Hills. Municipal district/county and town staff will be able to indicate if there are any individuals or groups that it will be important to engage in the consultation process. 

E3 Lithium is becoming more known in these towns with the operation of the Direct Lithium Extraction Field Pilot Plant, which operated in the fall of 2023. E3 Lithium has also conducted several site tours of the pilot area, including hosting a teach-in with the Alberta Energy Regulator in 2023.  

However, for the most part, E3 Lithium is relatively unknown to most Albertans, and our technology is unique compared to other jurisdictions worldwide. As such, E3 Lithium plans to provide a “information first” approach to engagement in the region. Throughout the engagement process, educational materials such as information brochures, frequently asked questions, website content, social media campaigns and site tours will be used to promote the industry, describe E3 Lithium’s future operations, as well as the low-impact type of lithium extraction, its benefits, and its risks.

The Project will occur within Treaty 7 territory, comprised of the Siksika (Blackfoot), Piikani (Peigan), Kainai (Blood), Tsuut'ina (Sarcee), and Stoney-Nakoda First Nations, including Bearspaw First Nation, Chiniki First Nation and Wesley (Goodstoney) First Nation. The Project also takes place in Treaty 6 territory, comprised of Sunchild, O’Chiese, Montana, Samson Cree, Louis Bull and Ermineskin First Nations. E3 Lithium intends to engage with lndigenous leaders within these communities on hiring of Indigenous businesses wherever possible. 

E3 Lithium intends to engage with Indigenous communities regarding the potential for economic participation in its projects. Building Indigenous capacity for the Clearwater Project could take the form of a potential equity investment in the project itself or by supporting of professional services, expertise and other support services required for the Clearwater Project through entities such as the Alberta Indigenous Opportunities Corporation. 

E3 Lithium is supportive of creating jobs either directly at the Clearwater facility or by promoting capacity building for both Indigenous owned businesses and local employment and business opportunities that support the Clearwater facility (e.g., trucking company, and other support services).
