British Columbia is currently at the center of an important national debate about the future of responsible resource development and access to new markets. The federal and provincial governments are considering proposals for new LNG plants, new oil and natural gas pipelines and other resource developments. Join the NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition at the 2016 Fall Forum and make your voice heard on these important questions!
The main objective of the Forum is to develop a framework for responsible resource development that will enable enduring prosperity for urban and rural resource communities, businesses and community organizations for present and future generations.
The 2016 Fall Forum will hear from industry, government, First Nations and community leaders about all aspects of resource development. Panel and keynote speakers will share perspectives that help define responsible resource development and how decisions can be made to achieve responsible resource development. As well the Forum will focus on future challenges and opportunities and will also profile ‘best practices’ from industry leaders.
Banquet Keynote Speaker Vancouver Sun Political Columnist Vaughn Palmer will set the scene for the next BC Election on May 9, 2017. The UNBC Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium (UNBC CIRC) will host a workshop on Tuesday November 29th, 2016 from 1pm to 4:30pm to get the Fall Forum started on the right track - CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP.
