Indigenous Economic Reconciliation

Fostering economic growth and development in Indigenous communities is crucial to reconciliation. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated systemic inequities and resulted in a steeper road to recovery for vulnerable populations across the country, but most acutely for Indigenous people.

That is why this year’s Indigenous Economic Development Forum will focus on how we keep up the momentum on our collective efforts to expand economic opportunities with Indigenous communities across Canada so that Indigenous Canadians can experience the same quality of life as other Canadians.

Indigenous Economic Reconciliation is part of Canada 2020’s new media series Crisis to ResilienceLearn more about our new media series here.

This event will be broadcasted on Zoom and Canada 2020’s Facebook page.
