The Canadian Aboriginal Community has an opportunity to capitalize on significant business opportunities that will benefit our communities. This conference will focus on how these communities have been successful in developing business opportunities and will provide workshops on key areas that need to be considered as Aboriginal business leaders continue their journey toward economic prosperity and self-reliance. “The content within this conference will provide our delegates with information on successful business development opportunities. It will broaden the discourse on the balance between economic development and community well-being. It will be thought provoking in terms of the many areas that require attention by community leaders and managerial administrators.” says Terry Goodtrack, President and CEO, AFOA Canada.
