Introducing the Inaugural Indigenomics Indigenous Economic Council

June 26, 2019, Vancouver B.C… For the first time in the history of Canada, a group of economists are being convened to advise on the growing strength of the Indigenous economy. The Indigenomics Institute is hosting the inaugural national Indigenomics Council in Vancouver on June 27th, 2019. This first of its kind economic council is focusing on the strength of the emerging Indigenous economy.

Taking place immediately after the inaugural Indigenomics By Design- 100 billion dollar Indigenous Economy Conference in Richmond June 24-26th, 2019, the Council will be made up of a team of economists and advisors from leading financial Institutions, government, and research institutes.

This highly anticipated Indigenous led, economic Council will establish a focused narrative on the growing strength of the Indigenous economy. The Council is tasked with advising on the design and development of the metrics to support the focused growth of the Indigenous economy.

“The Council will build upon the founding concept of the Indigenomics economic mix- a series of 12 economic levers to support the focused and designed growth of the Indigenous economy towards achieving a 100 billion Indigenous annual economy,” said Carol Anne Hilton, CEO and Founder, Indigenomics Institute.

“The Indigenomics Council is a dynamic and innovative advisory table that will help to amplify Indigenous economic growth,” says Christine Bergeron, Chief Member Services Officer of Vancity credit union, adding she warmly welcomes the opportunity to participate. “Convening this exceptional group of economists will bring new attention to the growing strength of the Indigenous economy and its importance to Canada.”

The growth of the Indigenous economy is essential to Canada’s future. The new narrative of this country is Indigenous peoples are economic powerhouses and must move away from seeing Indigenous peoples as a burden on the fiscal system. Indigenomics is formed on the simple invitation of answering the call to the question, “Who wants to play Indigenomics?” concluded Carol Anne Hilton.

About the Indigenomics Institute: The Indigenomics Institute is converging ideas, tools resources and peoples to grow the Indigenous economy. Indigenomics is a platform for modern Indigenous, constructive and generative economic design.
