The Call to Action #92 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission states that the corporate sector must engage in meaningful consultation and develop respectful relationships with Indigenous communities and businesses as well as providing education and opportunities to Indigenous people.

The time to take action is now.

The economic landscape in Saskatchewan is changing. New ideas and technology are changing the way traditional sectors do business and creating entirely new sectors of opportunity. Saskatchewan’s Indigenous people are connecting with these changes and looking for opportunities to participate and lead.

The Saskatchewan Indigenous Business Forum presented by the Saskatchewan First Nations Economic Development Network is an opportunity for industry to answer the call and take action.

We are focusing on Indigenous youth, entrepreneurship and economic diversity by bringing Indigenous youth from around the province together with industry leaders for a day of thoughtful networking and education.

The Saskatchewan Indigenous Business Forum presented by the Saskatchewan First Nations Economic Development Network is the perfect opportunity to expand your network, showcase your business, and be a part of positive change.
