Due to last year’s success, the CPA is once again participating in the Forward Summit: Empowering Indigenous Communities taking place in Calgary, Alberta on April 28-29, 2020. The Summit is an Indigenous-led event that includes roundtable discussions, workshops and the opportunity to meet with Indigenous leaders, industry and government representatives to identify opportunities to build successful economic partnerships with Indigenous communities.

Members who are interested in exploring partnerships with Indigenous communities are invited to participate in this opportunity. The setting promotes an opportunity for you to: meet with key influencers and build relationships with Indigenous communities, explore new business opportunities, learn from success stories of other nations and their Industry partners, educate Indigenous and industry delegates about the benefits of propane, and gain a better understanding of the value of employing an Indigenous workforce and learning how to do it.

One of CPA’s partners last year, Superior Propane, said the following about his experience:

 “The Summit was the best conference I have ever been to in regards to potential clients wanting to talk to us about business versus chasing them down to do business with us – I believe because they are on a path to building businesses and are open to looking at all opportunities.” Shawn Whalen, Superior Propane

The cost to participate in the kiosk is approximately $2,800, depending on the number of member participants. Cost would include passes to the summit as well as branding promotion.

If your company is interested in attending the Summit and partnering with the CPA, please contact Sherri Clair, CPA Manager, Events & Marketing at or 613-683-2275.
