Public Policy, Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation: A Path Forward
Wednesday, December 7, 2022
8:00 - 10:30 am
University of Calgary,
Downtown Campus 906 8th Ave SW
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s call to action #43 calls upon federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal governments to fully adopt and implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as the framework for reconciliation.
Current and future public policy professionals can no longer conduct Government Relations and Indigenous Relations in silos – that work must be aligned and bring all stakeholders to the table. Using the context of energy projects here in Alberta, this event will examine how successful policy work can be done, and what must be improved to align with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
Join speaker, thought leader, and storyteller Chief Lee Crowchild along with Alberta Deputy Minister of Energy Grant Sprague as they lead a discussion about Indigenous Relations, public policy and the steps we can take to ensure a better future.
