Welcome Chiefs, Councillors, Elders, resource developers, businesses and Government representatives to the 4th Indigenous Resource Opportunities Conference.   We are excited to relaunch this First Nations-led conference with a focus on sharing success stories of First Nations, resource developers and the Government working together to advance positive projects. Since the launch of the original series conference, many successful partnerships now exist that are bringing significant benefits to First Nations, resource developers, businesses and all levels of Government.  When First Nations communities are healthy and have opportunities, we all benefit.  The conference lays the foundation for future partnerships and resulting benefits for First Nations and the resource sector.
