SURREY — A conference aimed at “building links between Canada and India through innovation, technology and engagement” is being held this Friday to Sunday at the Central City Tower, at SFU’s Surrey campus.

Hosted by Fraser Health and SFU, Saturday’s first session will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 13450-102nd Avenue with opening remarks by B.C. Minister of Health Adrian Dix.

Saturday’s second session is 1:15 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Surrey’s SFU Campus, and will tackle topics like leadership and health — leadership, professionalism, ethics and building a healthy and civil society. This will be followed by a $105-per-person banquet from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., co-hosted by the Surrey Board of Trade, at the Royal King Palace and Convention Centre at 8158 128th Street in Newton.
