JOINT WESTERN Session – Calgary Chapter in partnership with the B.C. and Edmonton Chapters

Our journey towards reconciliation by building relationships based on mutual respect, trust, understanding and reciprocity requires the strong commitment of all parties. Advancement has been made in recent years, and the journey towards authentic relationship-building and collaboration continues.
In this session, you will hear from Indigenous and non-Indigenous panel members who have had experience working together in parallel ways and ethical space. They will share their stories, successes and challenges, recognizing at times, the goals and objectives of all parties do not intersect. The importance of building meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities early on in the corporate planning and development process will be highlighted, including perspectives on the role of the board.
We will be joined by Ian Anderson, prior CEO of Trans Mountain Corporation, Billy (William) Morin, Chief of the Enoch Cree First Nation, Jeff Zweig, CEO of Mosaic, and Robert J. Dennis Sr., Chief Councillor for Huu-ay-aht First Nations. The session will be moderated by Kara Flynn, Vice President, Government and Public Affairs, Syncrude Canada. This is a collaborative session from the Western Chapters of the ICD including Calgary, Edmonton and B.C.
