The November 2015 conference is taking place in Vancouver. More details coming soon.

Previous sponsors include:
The Canadian Aboriginal Mineral Association is an Aboriginal, non-profit organization which seeks to increase the understanding of the minerals industry, Aboriginal mining and Aboriginal communities' paramount interests in lands and resources. Through increasing this awareness, all parties will benefit.
Aboriginal communities and resource companies often utilize common lands for opposing uses and with differing values.
Aboriginal communities maintain a residual and ongoing right to use lands ceded by them through treaties, while resource companies also have a right to access and use these same lands for mineral development through legislation. In the next decade how will Aboriginal communities and resource companies move from talking about consultation to evolving forms of consent?
