Haskayne Hour | Opportunities down the pipe: Influences on successful Indigenous and industry relationships
The 2018-2019 season of Haskayne Hour kicks off with a discussion around the framework for relationships between government, industry and Indigenous groups in the context of reconciliation and economic or business relationships. Particular focus will be on what government is doing right, the barriers to successful relationships and what effective engagement and partnership can look like in the context of BC LNG.

About the speakers:

Penny Favel began her career at TransCanada in 2008 and in 2017 became Vice President, Environment, Land & Indigenous Relations (ELIR). Between 2008 and 2014, Ms. Favel, as Director of Legal, led various legal teams with responsibility for all project construction undertaken by TransCanada, including energy projects and pipelines. Her larger team also supported procurement, land, safety and environment as well as Indigenous relations. In 2014, she became the Director for the Indigenous Relations team with responsibilities for all of TransCanada's liquid, gas and energy Business Units in Canada and the United States with governance accountabilities for Mexico.

Ms. Favel began practicing law in 1991 and has supported construction projects for municipalities, utilities, national defence and major infrastructure energy projects. She has experience working in litigation, commercial law, construction law, and Indigenous law as it relates to commercial undertakings. She has worked in four Canadian provinces, and in 1999 was responsible for drafting the transfers of administration as well as the commercial and residential leases necessary for the creation of the new territory of Nunavut.

Jennifer Winter is an Assistant Professor and the Scientific Director of the Energy and Environmental Policy research division at The School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary. Her research evaluates climate policies, and examines the effects of government regulation and policy on energy development and the associated consequences and trade-offs. Current research projects include differences and similarities in Indigenous, government and industry perspectives on consultation and engagement; social impacts of hydraulic fracturing; comparing provincial emission-reduction policies; and federalism and climate policy. Dr. Winter is also co-editing a book on the experiences of Indigenous communities with resource development in Canada.

Recognition of her work include a 2014 Young Women in Energy Award, being named one of Alberta Oil Magazine’s Top 35 Under 35 in 2016, and one of Avenue magazine’s Calgary Top 40 Under 40 in 2017. Dr. Winter serves on the Future Leaders Board of Directors of the World Petroleum Council Canada and the advisory committee of the Alberta Narratives Project, and is a member of Global Affairs Canada’s Environmental Assessment Advisory Group.
