Discover Key Learnings And Themes That Emerged From Forward Summit
Hundreds gathered at Forward Summit in Calgary to explore opportunities for economic prosperity between Indigenous and industry thought-leaders. Over 500 Chiefs, business owners, economic development officers and reconciliation champions from major sectors attended three days of panels, roundtables and workshops. Forward Summit was truly unique and the discussions taken place and the relationships built on the show floor will be critical to long-term partnerships and major projects in Canada.
