ABOUT

Registration is now open for the National Coalition of Chiefs (NCC) third Energy Summit on May 6-7, 2019 in Gatineau-Ottawa, Quebec.

The National Coalition of Chiefs (“NCC”) was introduced through meetings of a group of First Nation Chiefs and Metis leaders from across Canada who were interested in forming a coalition of industry-supportive and pro-development Chiefs and Metis leaders from across Canada with a mandate to “Defeat On-Reserve Poverty”. NCC leaders understood that a venue for creating positive and cooperative dialogue directly between Indigenous leaders and leaders from the Natural Resource Industry does not currently exist, and that Indigenous communities were faced with constant social despair caused by an ongoing and relentless poverty crisis. Thus, NCC leaders agreed that a new approach was needed, and that this new approach would focus on creating positive and cooperative dialogue between Indigenous leaders and leaders from Canada’s Natural Resource Industry with a current focus on Canada’s oil and gas industry. Progressive First Nation Chiefs and Metis leaders from across Canada will gather on a regular basis with CEOs from Canada’s Natural Resource Industry to exchange ideas and initiatives to improve their relationship, to support major project developments, and to work towards bringing Canada’s Indigenous community into prosperity through heightened levels of Indigenous participation in Canada’s economy.

The NCC Energy Summit is an important opportunity for industry leaders to come together with pro-development First Nation Chiefs and Metis leaders to bridge the gap and be able to work together to get projects going and completed. First Nation and Metis Communities recognize the benefits that hydrocarbon production provides to their communities and recognize that they offer an available solution for ending poverty.

The NCC Chiefs want to ensure Industry is in the room to allow for greater discussion and networking on alignment of our shared interests.
