About this event

Today, we have an opportunity to develop projects that support the prosperity of local communities, while respecting the culture and history of Indigenous Peoples. Working collaboratively with Indigenous communities through meaningful consultation, employment and business participation, enhanced educational programs and community investment is critical to the future success of Canada’s economy. Learn from business leaders as they describe their successes, provide advice to overcome challenges, and define their vision for the next generation of an Indigenous-inclusive business.
