TOP100 PROJECTS WEST
Celebrating the Biggest
Infrastructure Projects in
RENEW CANADA WOULD LIKE TO THANK OUR PARTNERS AND
ALL THE ATTENDEES WHO MADE THE EVENING A SUCCESS!
N MAY 11, senior executives from throughout the Canadian
public sector infrastructure landscape came together at The
Pinnacle, Harbourfront Hotel in Vancouver to celebrate
more than $273 billion in infrastructure megaproject development at the inaugural Top100 Projects West Key Players
and Owners Dinner.
First Nations Major Projects Coalition chair, Chief Sharleen Gale
provided keynote remarks at the event, which focused on the roles
of Indigenous nations in the energy transition to net zero, and the
competitive advantage of Indigenous consent.
“The allied world is turning to countries like Canada for a safe
supply of energy, critical minerals, and other natural resources. All
of these are and will be sourced from our Indigenous lands,” said
Gale, Chief of Fort Nelson First Nation.
“The question we are dealing with is not if this development
will happen, but when it will happen. The answer to how it happens is with Indigenous consent.”
Work is underway to develop the 2024 edition of the Top100
Projects report. Project and stakeholder submissions are being
accepted now. If you would like to supply us with information for
consideration for the report, please email ReNew Canada Editor
