BC Natural Resources Forum gears up for 2022 panel


A panel on British Columbia’s natural resources will be held in Prince George on January 18.

The 19th Annual BC Natural Resources Forum will be held until the 20th, but it will be a virtual experience this year.

“It brings together government, various industries and communities, including Indigenous communities, to really discuss the challenges and opportunities that exist in multiple industries,” said Sarah Weber, president and CEO of C3 Alliance Corp.

“Our goal is to bring people together to explore innovative ways to strengthen the resource economy. “

The event will feature speakers such as Chief Dolleen Logan of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, Prince George-Valemount MPP Shirley Bond, City of Prince George Lyn Hall, and Regional Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Terry Teegee.

“There are industry leaders in forestry, energy and mining talking about low carbon innovation. And what got us here won’t get us there as we look forward to issues like climate change as well as the challenges of reconciliation with Indigenous communities, as well as our supply chains, ”Weber said.

Some of the panels include Pathways to Decarbonization, Attracting Sustainable Investments to British Columbia, a Resource Ministers Roundtable, and Canada’s Connection to the World: BC’s Transportation and Supply Chain.

Tickets for the event are available on the BC Natural Resources Forum website.
