The conference’s keynote speaker, Seattle-based conservation biologist Jeff Wells, noted that not only is the conference the first of its kind for Timmins, but it may also be the only one where scientists and First Nations leaders meet to discuss climate change in Canada.

“I think that this is a ground breaking event which can hopefully be emulated in other parts of the boreal forest with other First Nations governments and communities. I think it’s the way forward,” he said.
