Summit on Aboriginal Economic Development: Developing Aboriginal Economies
May 1, 2008
9:00am – 5:00pm
On May 1, 2008, the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, in partnership with the Rt. Hon. Paul Martin, will be hosting a one-day symposium entitled “Developing Aboriginal Economies”. The summit will consist of two roundtables with a diverse group of panelists. The goal of this summit is to provide a forum for new ideas and new approaches to economic development in Aboriginal communities.The summit will take place at University of Toronto Faculty of Law’s Bennett Lecture Hall, 78 Queen’s Park, from 9-5pm on May 01, 2008.
Canada’s Aboriginal communities are extremely diverse, and so too is the range of economic challenges facing these communities. The Faculty of Law recognizes that meeting the challenge of developing Aboriginal economies will require complex and multifaceted solutions. Thus, the intention of this summit is not only to generate ideas, but to bring together the parties needed to forge unique and useful coalitions. With this in mind, our panelists include not only members of the bar and the Academy but also elected officials, and Aboriginal people in their capacities as leaders, business persons, and corporate leaders.
