Health & Safety

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 6th Indigenous Resource Opportunities Conference, we would like to provide an important message. 

Following the updates from public health officials regarding in-person gatherings and much careful consideration, we are excited to announce that we are planning for the 6th Indigenous Resource Opportunities Conference to take place in person at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo, BC!

The health and safety of our community remains very important to us. We are continuously monitoring and evaluating COVID-19 updates and will follow guidelines and policies put forward by public health authorities. The main priority is the health and well-being of our participants, delegates, staff, and volunteers.

In the case that an in-person event will not be possible due to unforeseen safety risks, the event will be held virtually on Friday, October 22, 2021.  Please note, these dates are subject to change.
