Our Land, Our Future: National Summit on Indigenous Youth and Natural Resource Development
November 21, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 22, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
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. This Conference Board of Canada event will focus on the need for a collaborative, mutually-beneficial approach, which is critical to ensuring sustainable, environmentally responsible development.
