National Conference 2020 – Tuesday Evening Events – Reception and Film Screening

Film Screening (6:30-7:30 PM)

We are pleased to be screening John Houston’s “Atautsikut / Leaving None Behind” from 6:30-7:30PM on Tuesday evening. Join us for  this incredible story and then head over to the Evening Reception and Celebration!

Synposis: Inuit and Cree of Nunavik (Northern Québec) recount how they escaped the economic oppression of the Hudson’s Bay Company. Overcoming tremendous challenges, they founded a co-operative; then other communities followed suit. The federation they created now handles a billion-dollar enterprise! Drawing on their traditional values, Inuit and Cree teach us something of real value today: how to put social development at the heart of everything – including a successful business!  Building prosperity, yet “leaving none behind.”

 

Evening Reception and Celebration (7:00 PM – onwards)

We invite you to join LCAC members and leaders, conference attendees and special guests from 7PM in the Ballroom for a wonderful evening of warm hospitality and information sharing, including the launch of our special issue of the Journal of Northern Public Affairs.  There will be finger foods and a cash bar.
