Over the twenty years, Colin Doylend has represented the interests of Indigenous communities, industry, and government towards building legacies of economic wealth that foster traditions, culture, and environmental stewardship. Colin is a former Chief of Staff to Provincial Ministers, senior communications advisor with BC Hydro, and has experience with modular constriction during his time with Metric Modular and as a certified social housing manager (CertCIH). However, he is most proud of his work with the Yale First Nation, where they developed ten affordable housing units that were built to the Passive House construction standard – the most energy-efficient homes funded by either INAC or the CHMC for an Indigenous community in Canada. Today, Colin is the Director of Corporate Development Nexii, which designs and manufactures innovative high-performance buildings and green building products that are sustainable, cost-efficient, and resilient in the face of climate change. Its building solutions have a lower carbon footprint with 20-33% less embodied carbon, use 33% less energy overall and 55% less heating energy.
