The IPAC Saskatchewan Regional Group is pleased to invite you to a live webcast:
Engaging Indigenous Governments and Businesses is the Canadian Economy
Kelly Lendsay, President and CEO of Indigenous Works, asks “Why do First Nations, Inuit and Metis communities continue to be excluded from the mainstream economy?” Canada’s GDP could grow by $270 billion and social remedial costs reduced when Indigenous peoples attain the same levels of education and employment. The benefits to be gained on all sides are clear, yet there remains a great divide between Indigenous businesses and organizations and corporate Canada.
Indigenous Works has just completed baseline research that provides new insights into the current state of relationships between major Canadian businesses and Indigenous peoples. Kelly Lendsay will present the study’s findings, and discuss the role that all governments and others can play in bridging the divide and fostering beneficial partnerships.
