Relationships between industry, government and Indigenous peoples lie at the heart of Canada’s natural resource sector. Each holds a powerful position with unique rights and responsibilities. Yet, all parties rely on the others to fully achieve their long-term aspirations and objectives. Canada’s future prosperity depends on these groups building respectful, collaborative and mutually-beneficial relationships so that each can become a stronger, more supportive partner for the others. A collaborative, mutually-beneficial approach is also critical to ensuring sustainable, environmentally responsible development.
This summit aimed to bridge gaps in understanding the interests, needs and challenges among all stakeholders in Canada’s natural resource sector. Delegates at this event had the opportunity to learn from, and network with, industry, government, Indigenous leaders, and Indigenous youth in a setting that had never existed in Canada until this event. Attendees gained a variety of insights on how to become a stronger, more supportive partner in this sector.
We’d like to thank our generous sponsor for their contribution to this event.
