State of the North is an annual conference that brings together decision makers, community leaders, experts and innovators to explore the state of Northern Ontario from an economic, social, and environmental perspective. Each year, Northern Policy Institute will provide an annual update on the State of the North by offering updates on a set of environmental, social and economic indicators that we will define and select in partnership with our communities. It’s time to take what we have learned and step forward into solution based discussions.
The 2019 conference will take place in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, September 26. The theme is ‘Future North’.
