About the conference

Join us for the Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects (ICCE) National Conference!

The 2023 conference theme is Sharing Knowledge to Take Action and will be held May 29 to 31, 2023 at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa, Ontario. The Westin Hotel is located at 11 Colonel By Dr, Ottawa, ON K1N 9H4 and the telephone number is 613-560-7000.

Our speakers

Speakers from coast to coast will share their knowledge on cumulative effects assessment, management, and monitoring, and how their ground-breaking initiatives are helping Indigenous communities to strengthen their capacity to build stronger communities.

Through interactive presentations and panels, conference participants will learn more about innovative ways to handle the social, cultural, and environmental components of cumulative effects work. These discussions, rooted in both Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledge, will empower communities to seize this opportunity to take action and continue their contribution to the ever-growing Indigenous leadership on cumulative effects.

Who Should Attend

This conference is primarily for First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities and Indigenous organizations that undertake, or aspire to undertake, cumulative effects assessment, monitoring and management in their communities. The conference will be of interest to individuals interested in or having responsibilities related to cumulative effects such as land managers, environmental technicians, knowledge holders and land guardians.
