2006 Women of Resource Communities Conference April 5-7, 2006

Building on the success of the 2005 Women of Resource Communities Conference, when 85 women from resource communities around British Columbia came together to share ideas and to hear from a panel of prominent women in oil and gas, mining, forestry, agriculture, aquaculture, communications and government, the 2006 Conference is destined to become an even bigger event.

The 2006 Women of Resource Communities Conference is an opportunity to:

  • Rethink how both the recreational and industrial stakeholders of British Columbia can work together for a sustainable future;
  • Rediscover the pride of working in BC's resource sectors and reclaim a greater leadership role for women who live and work in resource communities;
  • Recreate how we can have balanced resource communities where all stakeholders can live, work and play.

Delegates can expect to hear from leaders in both industry and government, as well as community leaders from several First Nations. The two day conference will be held at the beautiful Hill's Health Ranch in 100 Mile House and will provide delegates with an opportunity to experience the hospitality of the Cariboo region.

Organized by First Dollar Alliance, the 2006 Women of Resource Communities Conference will be of interest to women working directly in the resource industries, women working in the many services that depend on our primary industries, as well as women living and / or working in resource-based communities, First Nation communities, coastal BC, the Interior, rural communities and urban centres.
