Conference: Reconciliation and Inclusive Economic Growth for the Métis
October 12, 2017
OTTAWA ON– The Public Policy Forum is pleased to partner with the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board, the National Aboriginal Capital Corporations Association and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada to deliver the second in a three-part series of conferences on reconciliation and inclusive economic growth. This conference focuses on the Métis Nation.
Economic reconciliation is not only the fair and right thing to do, but there’s a strong business case for it as well. Canada’s economy would grow by $27.7 billion annually if barriers preventing Indigenous Canadians from participating in the Canadian economy were removed, according to a recent report by the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board.
