Innovation in energy and mining is the key theme at the annual Energy and Mines Ministers’ Conference in Halifax, July 20-21.
Energy Minister Michel Samson and Natural Resources Minister Zach Churchill are co-hosting the conference with Greg Rickford, federal Minister of Natural Resources.
“Canada has abundant natural resources and I look forward to discussing with my colleagues about how we build on the economic opportunities from responsible development and partnerships with our communities,” said Mr. Churchill. “While each province and region has its own opportunities and challenges, it’s important that we take the time to learn from one another’s experiences and expertise.”
Along with industry participants, more than 215 delegates are expected to attend.
“The energy and natural resource sectors have been the cornerstone of the Canadian economy for generations and we need to innovate for the future,” said Mr. Samson. “That means collaborating with governments, industry, academia and other partners to develop new technologies and stronger regulatory frameworks for environmentally responsible development.”
The conference is being held at the Marriott Harbourfront Hotel, 1919 Upper Water St.
