ALL-DAY EVENT JANUARY 14, 2020 - vancouver, british columbia

hard-won knowledge in how to build successful relationships

Progress to date

The principles of the UN Declaration on the  Rights of Indigenous Peoples are already standard operating practice for many Canadian businesses.

Who decides?

What constitutes an Indigenous governing body? Different communities have different answers to this. On Jan. 14, you'll find out why that matters. 

Change Is Opportunity

Together, First Nations are working with partners to show how the spirit of the Declaration can produce leading-edge results.

Join the Showcase for Success

Indigenous leaders and their business partners will converge on our stage to discuss how they have been using UNDRIP principles to build shared success.

Regulations for the future

Experts share perspectives on how statutory and regulatory decisions will be affected by the Declaration – and what this means for all levels of government.

Government intentions

  A strong investment climate with transparent policy means prosperity for all. We're inviting government representatives to  join the conversation.
