Call for Presentations and Success Stories

Tell us about an initiative, project or program and how it contributes towards improving lives in First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities to create positive change. How does it help to educate and build capacity for your leadership and/or governance? Is it a local, regional or national initiative and are you partnering with federal, provincial or municipal governments, corporate Canada, educational institutions, non-profits or other Indigenous organizations? Tell us how your First Nation, Inuit or Métis organization is actively demonstrating best practices that contribute to positive change? Do you have a success story to share and from which we can all learn from?
