June 6 and 7, 2017 at the Neoskweskau Complex, Mistissini

The high profile event Looking Ahead Together brought together experts from across the province and welcomed more than 180 participants in Mistissini on June 6-7, marking our first conference in a Cree Community. The development of socioeconomic, cultural and friendship links maintained between Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Nord-du-Québec exist for over 40 years and through participation in our events we are pleased that the links seem to be increasing.

At the conference we discussed many important topics such as entrepreneurship, the economy, tourism, mineral development in Northern Quebec and much more. This was a gathering with the objective of strengthening partnerships, business dialogue and cultural awareness between Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Eeyou Istchee James Bay and Nunavik.
