CAREER: Own Your Future

Changes in the world of work continue. Automation of jobs involving repetitive tasks is expanding. As an example, the move to driverless haul trucks has begun in earnest in the oil sands and other mining operations. These changes combined with the downturn in the oil and gas sector continue to challenge individuals in their career planning efforts.

The morning conference will look to representatives from government, industry, educational and economic development organizations to help us understand the important trends impacting careers in the Wood Buffalo Region. We will talk about how to use this information in planning and execution of our careers.

COLLABORATE: Indigenous, Industry & Government

It is important to build relationships between Indigenous communities, industry and government as it will enhance the understanding of their traditions and culture which will mutually benefit future partnerships, provide opportunities as well as create potential economic development in the oil sands area.

The afternoon conference will center on strategy and policy to support alliances for productive engagement in the Canadian oil sands.
