Cannabis – The Indigenous Opportunity

1:20 PM - 2:10 PM, Kitsilano D
Speakers: Brian Jones, Chief Christian Sinclair, Jamie Kunkel, John Hill, Sara Loft

(Panel Discussion)The Federal legalization of cannabis in Canada represents a huge opportunity for Indigenous Canadians to get involved in an emerging industry that has the potential to provide significant economic upside. Many First Nations across the country are actively pursuing opportunities in the Canadian cannabis industry and setting a new precedent for how indigenous companies work in partnership with non-indigenous companies or even as indigenous publicly traded companies. Some nations are focusing on serving their people with unique legislation that works better for them and on-reserve business licensing, while other nations are looking to tie into the federal framework and set up corporate entities to serve a larger market. No matter which approach, there is no denying the opportunity that exists for Canada’s indigenous people. Join this lively discussion as we discuss different models, unique challenges, and opportunities that lie ahead for Canada’s First Nations communities entering the cannabis industry. Moderated By: John Hill
