6th Annual Learning Together Conference

Interactive workshops

  • The Wahgoshig First Nation Project
  • The IBA Toolkit
  • An Oral History of Aboriginal People

The sessions provide living, breathing examples of important issues and best practices for communities and industry, issues that every company working in the Canadian mining industry needs to know.

One of our featured case studies, "Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) – Five years later," is facilitated by John Cutfeet.

The Learning Together Conference features something new:

Full-day Youth Symposium

Organizers expect that the Youth Symposium will draw about 50 Aboriginal youth from across Saskatchewan. The event will take place before the main conference, and will teach youth about employment opportunities in the mining industry.

Participants will leave with details of the types of jobs available in the mining sector, the level of education and training required, and how to go about getting these jobs. The symposium will include a Youth Ambassador who will provide an update on the event to the general conference the next day.
