State of the North is an annual conference that explores how northern leaders and policy experts can come together to find ways to grow and strengthen our Northern communities. This is a chance for you to share your ideas with NPI. The panelists and speakers will get your creative juices flowing for table discussions where you will have a chance to explore your own ideas along with other attendees. 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. Our first two conferences focused on the present, this year's theme is ‘Future North’.
