Sponsor Resources

Among Canada’s Indigenous peoples, the combination of entrepreneurial drive, long-term wealth management practices, and rising interest in public and private partnerships suggest the great potential for Indigenous communities to build economic success. At the same time, these opportunities are offset by legislative constraints on raising capital, the challenges of operating enterprises in remote places, and a historic legacy of distrust felt by Indigenous Peoples. Fortunately, Scotiabank’s Indigenous Financial Services group is eager to tackle the most complex business problems facing Indigenous Peoples, through knowledge-sharing that helps commercial clients navigate the challenges.

Leadership through Recovery

The Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation and Tsleil-Waututh Nation are continuing to drive growth and opportunity for their Nation’s members and the region and have proven track records of success in economic development projects, entrepreneurship and sustainability. The MST Development Corporation alone, a partnership established to oversee the properties jointly owned by the three Nations, owns more than 160 acres of developable land valued at over $1 billion.

Greater Vancouver Board of Trade invites you to our third annual Reconciliation in Action: Annual Address with Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Hear from leaders of these three Nations on their upcoming plans and activities and how Indigenous and non-Indigenous business communities can work together towards reconciliation and establishing mutually beneficial relationships.
