'Sault Ste. Marie - Resource City, Resource Champion' luncheon and discussion panel
The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce, Tenaris and Canadian natural resource leaders will gather on July 26th, 2019 for an insightful discussion on the importance of the resource-energy-manufacturing supply chain. At this Chamber of Commerce event, members will learn how not only Sault Ste. Marie, but all corners of the country can benefit when Canada’s resources are developed.
Resources are key to Canada’s prosperity today and tomorrow. As part of the resource and manufacturing supply chain, whether advanced manufacturers, technology innovators, environmental scientists, or other service and engineering providers, their impact is felt in every community across Canada. The connection between the resource-energy-manufacturing supply chain is a significant economic driver and job creator of the future.
The opportunities and challenges facing the resource and manufacturing supply chain are of interest to business and community leaders across the country. Sault Ste. Marie is no exception and as the Alternative Energy Capital of North America, Sault Ste. Marie has a very unique opportunity to hear from main influencers of the energy, mining and steel sectors.
The panel will feature senior leaders from Tenaris and Noront who will share their experiences and Sault Ste. Marie investment updates along with four national Industry Association leaders who will share national and global contexts.
