Regional Synergies Episode 3: Beyond the land acknowledgment

In the spring of 2022, the BC Craft Farmers co-operative and Retail Cannabis Council of BC hosted the inaugural BC Cannabis Summit in Kelowna. With the intent of showing respect for the Indigenous territory, the event’s planning committee approached Moccasin Trails Tourism and Consulting to ensure the summit featured meaningful opportunities for Indigenous participation throughout the three-day agenda and to showcase the great work Indigenous communities are developing with cannabis.

From this experience, both organizations found mutually beneficial opportunities that went from a one-off event to an ongoing partnership that continues to shape the cannabis industry in British Columbia.

In this session of our Regional Synergies webinar series, our guests David Hurford from the BC Craft Farmers co-operative and Greg Hopf from the Moccasin Trails Tourism and Consulting provided an overview of their learning opportunities, teachable moments, and ongoing partnership.
