Our Mission

Empowering Indigenous economies

Our mission is simple: to create a community focused on action by providing a platform for both corporate Canada and Indigenous Communities to discuss how to work in partnership towards a common goal: to progress economic reconciliation.

Our Purpose

We believe a strong, prosperous and equal Canada for all can only be achieved when industry and Indigenous communities work together.

Broadly mirroring the aims of the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Call to Action #92, Forward Summit exists to guide significant, national conversations on building respectful relationships, whereby the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples would be obtained before proceeding with economic development projects.
