On Wednesday, more than a dozen Aboriginal chiefs from across Atlantic Canada spent their morning discussing education at Dalhousie’s University Hall.
The roundtable was organized by the Honourable Carolyn Bennett, Canada’s Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs. The discussion was focused on strategies for building a stronger education system for First Nations, as well as the importance of indigenous languages and cultures.
Following the roundtable was an announcement event from the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs, sharing results of a new study on First Nation economic contributions to Atlantic Canada. The report, titled “$1.14 Billion Strong,” [PDF], offers evidence of the significant impact of the region’s Indigenous people’s on the economy — from Indigenous businesses through to direct spending.
