A Vision for Economic Development: First Nations shaping future growth and prosperity

First Nations are a prominent driver of economic growth and development in the region.

For millennia before settlers arrived, there were intricate trade networks and a vibrant economy. Today, First Nations continue to shape our region's economic and social development. As of 2016, the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business and TD Bank Group estimated the Indigenous economy to be worth $32 billion.

For the first time at the Board of Trade, join us for an opportunity to hear from leaders of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and the Squamish Nation Council. Each leader will highlight their plans for economic development, housing, partnership opportunities, as well as their overall aspirations for communities and the region.

Speakers:

Chief Wayne Sparrow, Musqueam
Khelsilem (Dustin Rivers), Spokesperson, Squamish Nation
