Workgroups for the Canadian Outdoor Summit

Prior to the Summit, working groups will develop recommendations and proposals pertaining to a specific topic. These will be presented at the Summit. Each workgroup will work independently of each other and of the Steering Committee. However, much effort will made to ensure coordination and communication between the workgroups and the Steering Committee. Workgroups will have co-chairs. These individuals will be accountable for their workgroup’s progress. Invitations to members of the workgroups will be sent between May and August 2019. First workgroup meetings are envisioned for mid-September.
