Douglas Cardinal will be sharing the way Indigenous people approach planning through working with nature, including wood. Many years ago, Mr. Cardinal was asked to work with Oujebougoumou and Ross River First Nations to bring proper housing and planning to the communities. Over the years his design-approach has evolved using the latest engineered timber products.
