NationTalk Introduces CVP with a $200,000 Donation in Listing Services to Indigenous Governments and Invites Corporate Canada to Get Involved

Halifax, July 15 – NationTalk, being the most established online communications network for all Inuit, Métis and First Nations organizations in Canada, has launched the Community Voices Program at the AFN, Annual General Assembly!

As the communications solution for Indigenous governing organizations in Canada, NationTalk purposefully developed the Community Voices Program to offer a wide range of communications and media services to Indigenous governments.  A truly Nation to Nation communications solution, our communities will have the opportunity to share press releases, event listings, job postings, and tender listings on a regional and national level AT NO COST.   – A value of $4,250 in unlimited listing services to the first 50 Indigenous governments that register.

Sign up forms can be found at the NationTalk booth at the AFN Trade show or online at to be part of this offering, which is the largest donation of services in NationTalk’s history. The first 50 respondents will receive this offer. As more corporate sponsors contribute, the Community Voices Program will be expanded to include all Indigenous governments. Don Barraclough, President and CEO of NationTalk said, “We have always put the message before the money for organizations that are in need but the Community Voices Program brings this giving to an exciting new level.”

“In an ever-advancing technological world, unlimited listings for all 663 First Nations communities in Canada would enhance the capacity of First Nations communities to share information to promote and advocate for positive change,” ~ former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Shawn A-in-chut Atleo.

NationTalk believes access, interaction and sharing of information should be free for all Indigenous governments. The Community Voices Program will serve as the primary inter-tribal, Indigenous communications platform through which clear, positive, straightforward and empowering messages can be delivered. This platform will not only amplify the cultures, traditions, and entrepreneurial spirit of today’s First Peoples, but it will provide more opportunities for economic development in our Indigenous communities across Canada.

“We support the Community Voices Program which will provide NationTalk services (events, tender, employment & media releases listings) at no cost to First Nations. We use NationTalk today, and through this program, we will certainly use the NationTalk Network more in future.” ~ Terry Goodtrack, President & CEO Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of Canada

“By providing all Aboriginal governments with access to the NationTalk Network, we all benefit from having an opportunity for dialogue that does not currently exist,” ~ Marion Crowe, Executive Director of the First Nations Health Managers Association (FNHMA).

Diversity has everything to do with competitive advantage. With the focus on the future of economic viability and sustainability, NationTalk has revolutionized the way vital information is shared, exchanged and distributed among Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal organizations in Canada. The Community Voices Program will provide progressive mainstream businesses with the opportunity to explore mutually beneficial partnerships and develop alliances with Indigenous communities that can offer numerous diversity-based advantages, including access to new labour markets, new suppliers, government procurement contracts, tax benefits, as well as improved access to natural resources.

“The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations has confidence that NationTalks’ Communication solution, of providing all 633 First Nations across Canada with access and opportunities to share information (media releases, event promotion job and tender postings, success stories) will foster and promote strong governance and the development of healthy, sustainable First Nation communities.” ~ Chief Perry Bellegarde, Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN).

NationTalk has developed an extensive and vibrant economic exchange network through which it invites corporate citizens to participate through Partner and Sponsor programs. By participating in NationTalk’s Community Voices Program, forward-thinking organizations will have the ability to gain strategic prominence within its network that can lead to prosperous new trade alliances with Aboriginal communities across Canada. NationTalk believes inclusion will set Mainstream businesses apart from their competition and allow leaders to flourish as they actively pursue collaborative prosperity with today’s First Peoples. Thus, NationTalk continues to encourage non-Aboriginal organizations to engage all First Peoples by supporting this new and inclusive playing field.

“The Chiefs of Ontario support NationTalk as they seek the financial resources to offer these services. We encourage corporations and governments to get involved and support the development and success of communications networks like NationTalk that are making opportunity happen for our people through innovative business models and partnerships.

Stan Beardy, Ontario Regional Chief, Chiefs of Ontario
