Canada's energy sector is undergoing a major transformation. In addition to responding to a fluctuating price environment, it is actively engaged in the changing federal and provincial policy landscape, regulatory setting and practices around Indigenous and community consultation. Against this backdrop, it has become even more important to successfully manage complex stakeholder, rights holder and government relationships as the industry responsibly develops and delivers Canada's energy products to market.

The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade's 2017 Energy Forum will bring together a diverse range of industry representatives, policy-makers and the business community for a dialogue on the importance of responsible energy development and its role in supporting a robust, economically sound and sustainable B.C. economy.
