AN EVOLUTIONARY SUMMIT LED BY YOU, THE PARTICIPANTS.

The Summit will unite communities and key players involved in economic development including local government, Indigenous leaders and government officials. The focus is on engaging grassroots dialogue that will lead to identifying key priorities affecting the path ahead for Northern Ontario.

The goal is to both engage the grassroots in the development of the region’s future economic development plans, while also evolving the conference format to become more productive in generating feedback planners need to maximize our full potential.

The Summit breaks away from the typical plenary and speaker approach. There is no pre-determined agenda.
You will not find a presenter speaking to the audience from start to finish, with a scrambled Q&A at the end.  The format will engage participants directly in the debate and formulation of both the summit agenda and outcomes.

The 3-day Summit will wrap up with an Accord discussion between the Northern Ontario leaders seeking a united front to validating the outcomes and setting regional direction in the implementation of the identified roadmap.

The event will complement other efforts taking place in Northern Ontario. The aim is to get thinkers and the actors, across cultural demographics in the same room to discuss several discreet goals. Further to that, what needs to done by each key player in the room to achieve those goals; politicians, regulators, economic development officers. The Accord will provide validation and commitment going forward.

We hope that you will enjoy this unprecedented experience and engage in this potentially historical milestone in northern development.
