Business leaders and attendees will take part in the Forward Summit conference, Feb. 26 to 28 at the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary.
There will be "game-changing roundtables with industry, engaging in conversations with top executives, Indigenous leaders and their peers"
Topics for the Indigenous-led conference include hydrocarbons as part of the economic reconciliation, trailblazing and having honest conversations on the clean-tech industry with First Nations communities and the barriers preventing growth.
They will also be discussing the growth of the cannabis industry and how Indigenous communities across Canada can be the drivers of investment, which means owning and operating space.
Discussions will also take place about the importance of public policy and Indigenous governance laws currently being written on production and sales of cannabis.
