Roundtable: The Growth of the Cannabis & Hemp Industry
Participants will gain a greater understanding of the new cannabis & hemp industry. Indigenous communities across Canada must be the drivers of investment, which means owning and operating space in all areas of the cannabis industry. Important public policy and Indigenous governance laws are currently being written which will be among the discussions.
In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
