The Business Council of British Columbia was pleased once again to join with organizers from the Province of BC, BC Assembly of First Nations, First Nations Summit and Union of BC Indian Chiefs, to co-host a welcome reception for all delegates attending the annual Leaders' Gathering. It is one of the largest gatherings of provincial and First Nations Leaders in the country and demonstrates a willingness to foster relationships, address problems, create solutions and celebrate success. We also welcomed the BC Federation of Labour as a new partner for this year's event, which offers an important opportunity to celebrate existing partnerships with First Nations and explore new collaborations. Chiefs and their guests from 203 First Nations across the province, BC Cabinet Ministers and senior government officials joined with senior business and labour leaders from the Business Council of British Columbia and BC Federation of Labour for an evening dedicated to relationship building and reconciliation.
