Walking Together in Reconciliation
With the passage of UNDRIP at the Federal level and DRIPA in BC, both law and expectations around engaging with Indigenous communities has changed. Join us to tap into valuable insights on how these changes affects the Private Sector*.

Featuring three guest speakers, conversations will range from the inclusion of Indigenous issues in environmental, social and corporate governance, to the representation and recruitment of Indigenous peoples on corporate boards and senior management. Also expect to learn more about the need for a wealth management regime, changes to financial, corporate and securities legislation as well as changes to financial regulation. In conclusion, we will touch on free prior and Informed consent for economic activities on traditional territories.

*This session is suitable and designed to deliver value for attendants in the private sector, public sector, and other practitioners.
