Effective Planning, Creation and Implementation of Your Trust
More and more Indigenous communities are creating Trusts as a result of the increasing number of specific claim settlements, impact and economic benefit agreements and other resources sharing opportunities. The resulting increase in wealth accumulation is placing tremendous responsibility upon leadership and management staff to create effective Trust structures. This workshop is designed to raise awareness and understanding amongst Community Officials about the following topics: how to plan a Trust; increased community readiness; understanding the complexities in creating a Trust; ways to create the most appropriate Trust structure for your needs; key areas in implementing a Trust; and suitable investment strategies that meet the needs of the Trust today and for future generations.
