The Chamber Wants to Discuss How We Will Shift Towards a Low Carbon Economy with Industry Leaders and Local Businesses 

KAMLOOPS, BC – The Chamber is bringing together industry leaders from mining, forestry, and petroleum for a Natural Resources Forum, featuring an industry panel discussion followed by a networking reception. 

The intent of the forum is to discuss how Interior BC business can play a crucial role in the shift towards a low-carbon economy and how an effective natural resources extraction strategy will unlock significant opportunities for the region.  

Executive Director, Acacia Pangilinan, “If we are truly going to work-towards a low-carbon future, we must pay attention to the circular economy – from cell phones to kayaks, almost every product we use today begins its lifecycle with the raw material extraction. Our region is a hub for natural resources and our local resource-based businesses have the innovative mindset to help Canada and the world make the leap towards a greener future for all.” 

Speakers at the event include: 

The forum discussion will be moderated by Kate Stebbings, Manager of Engagement for Trans Mountain Corporation, and current Board President for the Kamloops & District Chamber of Commerce.  


The event will take place at the Coast Hotel & Conference Centre located at 1250 Rogers Way on Thursday, May 26. Tickets are available for purchase at kamloopschamber.ca.
