AFOA Canada 15th National Conference

The AFOA Canada 15th Anniversary National Conference was held in Winnipeg, MB on February 17-19, 2015 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.

"Business Development - Capitalizing on Opportunities that Lead to Self-reliance and Economic Prosperity"
Aboriginal communities have an opportunity to capitalize on significant business opportunities that will benefit our communities.  These include but are not limited to resource development, renewable energy and spin off companies.  How do we capitalize on these opportunities?  How do we build our own capacity by discovering the strength within our people?  This conference will focus on how communities have been successful in developing business opportunities.  It will provide workshops on key areas that need to be considered as Aboriginal communities continue their journey toward economic prosperity and self-reliance.

AFOA Canada is pleased to announce our 15th Anniversary National Conference Co-Chairs and Committee Members.
