Health & Safety

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 5th Indigenous Resource Opportunities Conference, we would like to provide an important message regarding COVID-19. 

In light of the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, including a recent directive from the BC Provincial Health authorities prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people, we’ve made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the 5th Indigenous Resource Opportunities Conference until a later date.

The event initially scheduled for April 8-9, 2020 had been rescheduled to take place June 16-17, 2020 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, Nanaimo, BC.

This was not an easy decision to make, as we are aware of the considerable time, preparation, and anticipation that delegates, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors have dedicated to the conference. We acknowledge that all participants have made time in their schedules as well as travel and accommodation plans for this event, and we remain committed to creating a similarly high-quality experience for the conference in the future.

We understand that there are many questions regarding this date change, and we have done our best to address these in a brief FAQ on our website, available here. Our team is working hard on making all the required adjustments, and we will provide updates as they become available.

If you have any further questions in the meantime, email
