Why You Should Attend

Aboriginal Consultation and Collaboration for Energy

This marcus evans event will focus on a politically contentious and economically powerful topic, bringing together Canadaís Oil & Gas, Utilities, and Mining industries with Aboriginal communities, and the Canadian federal and provincial governments, to discuss issues of treaty and land rights as ancient as the nation and their considerable impact on key projects.

With the Canadian Supreme court recently announcing a renewed focus on Aboriginal treaty rights and the current regulatory upheaval in Alberta, the Canadian Energy Industry is looking for regulatory clarity, specifically in the important area of Aboriginal consultation. As Aboriginal communities are essential partners to the success of any large project in rural Western Canada, this is one conversation Aboriginal Affairs executives and advisors will not want to miss!

Over two and a half days, Senior VPís, VPs, General Counsel and Government Agencies involved in Aboriginal Relations, Partnerships, Community Engagement and Government Relations will come together and take part in 15+ presentations and case studies and network amongst one another to evaluate factors that will impact consultation practices of the near future.

Key Topics

  • Gain clarity into the aboriginal consultation process through the eyes of key provincial and federal regulatory bodies
  • Devise a realistic Relationship Agreement that will enable real progress in Aboriginal communities
  • Overcome project proposal fatigue in overwhelmed Aboriginal communities through direct communication and sustainability initiatives
  • Implement comprehensive internal and external training programs to avoid the perils of miscommunication
  • Evaluate factors that will impact consultation practices of the near future
