NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition Fall Forum to take place at the end of November

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition will be hosting a Fall Forum from November 29, 2016 to December 1, 2016 in Taylor and Fort St. John.

The Fall Forum panels and keynote speakers will discuss the importance of supporting responsible resource development in Northeast BC and the importance of resource industries to municipalities and rural communities.

The Forum will also have a workshop hosted by the University of Northern BC’s Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium.

Colin Griffith, Coalition ED, says the Forum has a few goals and things they want to identify.

“We want to identify current emerging challenges and oppurtunities facing resource development in northeastern B.C., we want our participants to share perspectives on responsible resource development means going forward.”

Last year the Forum had a little over 100 participants. This year, they have a lot of interest and expect at least 100 people, if not considerably more.

Griffith understands the economy isn’t the greatest right now, so that might have a impact on the attendance numbers but is still hoping for lots of participants.

Tickets are $175 and available at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-future-of-responsible-resource-development-in-bc-tickets-27914511054
