This year Marine Renewables Canada is offering training and information sessions to support members’ needs and business efforts. These sessions will provide MRC members with knowledge, insight, and practical advice that can help them with project planning and development, business development, and relationship-building.

MRC Member Sessions are complimentary with conference registration and exclusive to MRC members only.

12:30 – 2:00 PM       Working with Indigenous Peoples and cultivating relationships
MRC member companies will have the opportunity to take a deeper dive into best practices for Indigenous engagement. During this session, participants will gain insight on how to better cultivate Indigenous relationships, understand business reasons for work with Indigenous Peoples, and tips for developing Indigenous engagement plans and activities.

2:15 – 3:15 PM         How to communicate effectively about marine renewable energy
Marine renewable energy is still a fairly new technology that is not widely known about or understood. Communicating to the public and stakeholders about the sector, the technology, costs and benefits, research findings, etc. can be challenging, particularly when topics such as energy and electricity are already complex subjects. This session will provide insight and tips on how to identify public and stakeholder communication needs, develop a plan/approach, and ultimately, communicate effectively about your technology, business, or project.

More details to be posted soon.
