Mineral exploration and development in Québec and Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the drivers of the regional economy, providing opportunities for new ventures, supporting existing businesses and industries and, increasingly, yielding benefits for First Nations.
Insight Information has organized a comprehensive event and assembled a select group of government, Aboriginal and industry leaders and experts to help conference participants understand what they must do in order to contribute to and benefit from the preceding opportunities.
All the presenters are well-known on the resource scene and will be sharing their insights into what it is that defines the region’s resource sector and, more importantly, how one can participate in developing their resource endowment. Participants will also hear from companies presently involved in the exploration and development of those resources and will learn about the general economic, regulatory and financing environment related to resource projects in the regions, with particular reference to issues associated with First Nations.
Conference attendees will be able to address their questions and comments formally to presenters during sessions and informally during networking breaks. Attendees will also be provided with information materials to assist their assessment of opportunities and to build their network of contacts.
Space is limited, so please register early.
