The AFOA Canada 21st National Conference will be held October 27 - 29, 2020 at the Halifax Convention Centre in Halifax, NS.
The Indigenous Economy of Tomorrow
Many communities are creating Economic Development Corporations as a vehicle to participate in the larger economy. Profits generated are used to grow the businesses and to supplement expenditures on community social programming. In deciding on which business opportunity to explore, community leaders are considering how community values apply to this opportunity. The opening plenary panel will explore how having a discussion on community values and beliefs provides guidance on the business opportunities available to the community. If you are part of the consultation, advisory or decision-making processes on whether to pursue a particular business opportunity, this is a must attend conference for you.
