We have talked before on this blog about the fact that Yukon Energy is looking to form business partnerships with Yukon First Nations on future energy projects.
Over the past two days we hosted, in partnership with the Council of Yukon First Nations and Yukon Indian Development Corp., an energy forum. Representatives from First Nation governments and Development Corporations, along with other interested parties, came together to explore business possibilities.
There was great discussion and a general agreement that this forum was a good first step. There was a request for continued dialogue and sharing of information on the topic of energy in the territory, and an overall sense that First Nation governments and Development Corporations are interested in seeing if there might be energy-related projects that would be a good investment for them.
Below are a couple of photos from the two days of discussion. 1) Council of Yukon First Nations Grand Chief Ruth Massie; 2) Yukon Energy's Hector Campbell leading a group discussion. Photo credit: www.archbould.com.
