Last year, several additional events were held in conjunction with the 2017 Forum, including:
Prince George Energy Citizens Reception
Canada’s Energy Citizens hosted an Energy Citizens evening reception on Monday, January 30, 2017 at the Ramada Hotel. The group invited delegates to join them to learn more about Energy Citizens and meet with other individuals and discuss Canada’s energy future. The first round of drinks and appetizers was on them!
In British Columbia, the oil and gas industry plays a vital role in our economy. Over 20,000 people are employed in BC by industry which contributed over $1.5 billion to the provincial government last year alone. This money helps fund the schools, healthcare and other important infrastructure we need to build a bright future for our province and our families. So why not meet with other members of your community and have a discussion around Canadian energy?
Northern Development Initiative Trust Reception
Northern Development Initiative Trust was pleased to again host a reception during the 2017 BC Natural Resource Forum. Last year’s sold out event, hosted in partnership with the Ramada Hotel Prince George, proved to be a highlight of the Forum. All conference participants were invited to attend for great music, food, drink and conversation about how to continue to build a stronger north. The reception took place at the Ramada Hotel Prince George.
Regional Innovation Opportunity
Industry, government, and regional stakeholders, plus BC companies and innovators were invited to the Regional Innovation Opportunity in Prince George. Hosted by BC Innovation Council, the event showcased challenges and opportunities from a variety of organizations across the province, to be solved by local entrepreneurs and companies. The initiative brought industry and local companies together to spark further innovation and job growth in regional economies. It was also a platform for companies to showcase what they do and request innovative solutions to their challenges for growth. Attendees of the BC Natural Resource Forum were invited, as the event aimed to support innovation and growth in all sectors including the natural resource industries.
