When the BC Natural Resources Forum returns as a live event in Prince George this January, it will include a lineup of top industry, government and First Nations leaders on the program.
The 20th edition of the annual industry forum takes place at the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre from Jan. 17 to Jan. 19. In the previous two years, the conference was held as a “virtual event” because of public health restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program for the 2023 conference includes keynote addresses by BC Hydro president and CEO Chris O’Riley, BC Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief Terry Teegee and CN Rail president and CEO Tracy Robinson.
B.C. Minister of Forests Katrine Conroy, BC Minster of Land, Water and Resource Stewardship Josie Osborne and BC Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Initiatives Bruce Ralston will hold a breakfast panel discussion on Jan. 19.
LNG Canada CEO Jason Klein and Coastal GasLink president Bevin Wirzba will hold a “fireside chat” on liquid natural gas exports to close out the day on Jan. 18.
Other panel discussions scheduled include sessions on the future of forestry, Indigenous business initiatives, the future of the workforce, innovation in natural gas production, the state of the hydrogen economy, and cooperation between mining companies and Indigenous communities.
To register to attend in-person or virtually, go to the BC Natural Resources Forum website. Two-day passes start at $479 to attend in person, or $229 to attend online only. Tickets for the keynote address luncheons and banquet dinner start at $79 per person.
