Look for more information about speakers and topics at the 2018 BC Natural Resources Forum in the weeks ahead.

“The Forum offers a neutral, non-partisan and positive arena to discuss and learn first-hand the latest news, trends and opportunities linked to the resource sector in BC.  There is no other gathering that provides this diversity of speakers, delegates, exhibitors and leaders under one roof to discuss issues and explore the challenges and unprecedented opportunities unfolding in the province. This year the Forum will introduce two new panels on International Trade, and Balancing Socio-Economic, Cultural and Environmental Values. View program

Attendance is again expected to reach 850 delegates making it one of the largest conferences in Northern BC each year. The 2018 Forum  will continue to include a huge contingent of federal, provincial and local government leaders, as well as continuing strong interest, support and attendance by First Nation leaders, representatives from resource developers and service and supply sectors that are the foundation of our resource economy.” – from bcnaturalresourcesforum.com
