ECONOMIC SUMMIT PRESENTS…
The Indigenous Economy
Island First Nations are expanding economic activities in traditional and non-traditional industries. They are becoming lead economic players, driving wealth creation and employment for their members while contributing to the economic vitality of local communities. Leaders from three First Nation development corporations – Huu-ay-aht, Snuneymuxw, and Malahat – will share stories of where they are headed, what’s working, and what’s needed for business success and economic vitality.
Join Trever Cootes, Ian Simpson and Angela van den Hout for this important conversation at the hybrid ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit taking place October 27th & 28th at the Vancouver Island Convention Centre and online.
