There will be thought provoking topics in the concurrent sessions along with entertainment, storytelling, cultural demonstrations and trade show booths.

It provides opportunities for PAGC First Nations to participate in knowledge exchange activities with professionals and Indigenous groups. There will be key note presentations, interactive workshops, panel discussions, sharing circles, and workshop sessions.
Participants will take part in the dialogue, be able to ask questions, and make recommendations on the improvement of the Justice System and Policing Sector that reflect First Nation cultures.
