Innovations in land management of First Nations - opportunities for development.

Join Chief Robert Louie in a panel discussion hosted by past president Gregory Steves as we look to the future of First Nations land management. 


Panelists will explore the innovations coming from First Nations in Canada in managing their lands to create development opportunities and support economic prosperity in their communities.  We'll dive deep into the recently announced First Nations National Land Registry and how this and other initiatives will support Nations in managing their land base.


Panelist will include Chief Robert Louie (Westbank First Nation and Chair of the Lands Advisory Board), Mindy Wight (CEO, Nch’ḵay̓ Development Corporation), and Al-Karim Kara (President and CEO, Land Title and Survey Authority).
