The #TrueNorth Business Forum is back.

Co-hosted by the Prince George and BC Chambers of Commerce, the #TrueNorth Business Forum is a one-day program focused on building a more resilient and prosperous northern B.C. Thought-leading experts on economic development, leadership and emerging industries will bring participants the most current data and proven strategies to grow your brands, communities, teams and culture.

The all-day forum will be held on Tuesday, January 22 in the Courtyard by Marriott.

With the recent final investment decision from LNG Canada, the Prince George and BC Chambers of Commerce are pleased to welcome LNG Canada as the title partner for 2019. Once again participating as the economic development partner, Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) will lead an engaging discussion on northern business, including an afternoon breakout session focused on accessing funds to grow your business.

The afternoon at #TrueNorth is changing for 2019, providing three distinct streams for attendees to select, including: leadership, clean tech and, as previously noted, NDIT will host a discussion on accessing funding.

“Following a successful #TrueNorth Forum in 2018, we reviewed the feedback received from attendees, creating additional opportunities for engagement – with a focus on economies across Northern BC and the issues being raised by member businesses and organizations,” said Todd Corrigall, CEO, Prince George Chamber of Commerce. “With the historic private investment from LNG Canada, businesses will have a strategic opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the opportunities available to them through this partnership.”

“#TrueNorth is a unique conference in B.C., it’s purpose-built for leaders, businesses and communities in the north,” said Val Litwin, President and CEO, BC Chamber of Commerce. “We need a gathering place like this now more than ever because issues like competiveness and sustainable economic development can only be solved at the regional level.”

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Joel McKay, CEO, Northern Development Initiative Trust
  • David Irvine, Leadership Expert
  • Susannah Pierce, Director of External Relations, LNG Canada (Lunch Keynote)

New speakers are being added on a weekly basis, with unique panels, question and answer sessions and tremendous learning opportunities.
