Expanding the Circle: What Reconciliation and Inclusive Economic Growth Can Mean for First Nations and Canada

Posted on Monday, February 6, 2017

 

DATE: Wednesday February 15th

TIME: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

LOCATION: The Westin Ottawa, 11 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa

 

Our exciting speaker lineup includes: Perry Bellegarde, Karen Mundine, Carol Anne Hilton, Karen Restoule, Chief Ian Campbell and featuring keynote speaker Hon. Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada 

Economic reconciliation is not only the fair and right thing to do, but there's a strong business case for it as well. Canada's economy would grow by $27.7 billion annually if barriers preventing Indigenous Canadians from participating in the Canadian economy were removed, according to a recent report by the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board.

The Public Policy Forum is pleased to partner with the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board, the National Aboriginal Capital Corporations Association and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada to deliver the first in a three-part series of conferences on reconciliation and inclusive economic growth. This conference will focus on First Nations, with subsequent conferences focused on Inuit and Métis communities.

 

Stay tuned-more speakers to be confirmed!
