Tabatha Bull, Clint Davis and Matt Jamieson, in conversation with Karen Restoule
Economic reconciliation is proving itself to be the pathway to prosperity for Indigenous peoples across the country. Indigenous businesses are growing at five times the rate of non-Indigenous businesses. There is a marked increase in the number of Indigenous communities and corporations entering into equity partnerships with corporate Canada. Recent noted successes like the Oneida Energy Storage Project, and the Mi’kmaq First Nations Coalition’s acquisition Clearwater Seafoods Inc., and others, signal a significant shift in the capacity of Indigenous communities to take on increasingly larger projects and continue to build their own path to prosperity.
Join Canadian Club Toronto on June 3 for a panel discussion with Indigenous business leaders Tabatha Bull (President & CEO, Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business), Clint Davis (CEO, Nunasi Corporation), and Matt Jamieson (CEO, Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation), as they discuss increased Indigenous participation in the national and international economy, improved industry-Indigenous partnerships, and the opportunities that are provided as part of Canada’s revitalization and growth efforts. This conversation will be moderated by Karen Restoule, Co-Founder of BOLD Realities.
