Event description

Description

Across Canada, social enterprises are creating employment and strengthening Indigenous communities. Come to hear author Shaun Loney, co-founder of Aki Energy and other innovative Aboriginal social enterprises. Shaun will share stories and information about:

  • Indigenous social enterprises in Manitoba that installed $8 million of clean, job-creating geothermal energy with no gov’t funding

  • A 13-acre farm that is transforming the food economy in a remote First Nations community struggling with diabetes

  • How social procurement in Winnipeg’s north end created 200 jobs for Indigenous youth

Also learn about the social enterprise movement in New Brunswick and how we can create our own army of problem-solvers!

Free for Aboriginal youth ages 35 and under. (When registering, choose the Aboriginal Youth ticket option)
