  • the impact and opportunity of climate change and Indigenous communities.
  • equity ownership by Indigenous communities in major projects.
  • incorporating Indigenous interests into environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) principles and strategies.

The conference will be co-hosted by Jean Paul (JP) Gladu, president of A2A Rail Canada and former president and CEO of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB),  and Mark Podlasly, director of economic policy for FNMPC and chair of First Nations Partnership (Pipelines).

First Nations Major Projects Coalition Third Annual Industry Engagement Event

Several First Nations have formed the First Nations Major Projects Coalition (FNMPC) for the purposes of examining how ownership of major resource projects on their lands could be facilitated and how environmental practices can be improved to meet their needs.

The FNMPC will host a strong line-up of keynote and panel speakers at the 3rd Annual Industry Engagement Event taking place in Prince George, BC. The objective of this event is to provide an environment to build relationships between the Coalition’s members and Industry that leads to business opportunities and new economic growth.
