Building Community Capacity: AFOA Canada Workshop on Demystifying Finance for Elected Leaders

The “Demystifying Finance for Elected Leaders” workshop will take place in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 8, 2012.

Understanding financial information is one of the key challenges facing elected leaders in Aboriginal communities.  Elected leaders are an important element of the financial governance of any Nation because they provide necessary financial oversight.  They must understand and interpret financial reports and information to make key decisions with significant impact on their communities.  The workshop focuses on 1) building financial literacy and 2) developing financial capacity.

Workshop topics include:

  • Building Financial Literacy
  • Roles and responsibilities of First Nation leadership in context of financial management
  • Basic financial accounting concepts and reporting
  • Role of budgets in helping elected leaders manage community funds
