ACEC-BC Event – Panel Discussion: Aboriginal Engagement

February 09, 2016
The Terminal City Club, 837 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada

In most resource-based projects, consulting engineers are often engaged in the very early stages to do preliminary work and investigation. Given recent developments, it is critical that all parties fully understand the importance of when and how to engage aboriginal communities to ensure successful projects.   Also, clients of ACEC-BC members are requesting consultants to outline their approaches to aboriginal engagement.

Join us as we discuss how consulting engineers can continue to take on this critical role in moving a project forward, developing long-term relationships and goals, and ultimately creating positive socio-economic change for the community.
