On May 17, join Canada 2020 for a day of solutions-oriented conversations on Indigenous-led economic development projects, with an eye to the future.
Reconciliation must be central to any vision for the future of Canada. Key to this ongoing project is a deeper understanding of economic inequality faced by Indigenous communities across Canada, the people and projects that are working toward closing the gap, and the opportunities this shift can foster for the Canadian economy.
The lunchtime keynote will feature The Hon. Marc Miller, Minister of Crown Indigenous Relations in conversation with Mark Podlasly, Director of Economic Policy at the First Nations Major Projects Coalition.
Event cost: $150 (includes breakfast and lunch)
