Procurement & Effecting Positive Change
Session Description

Industry leaders come together discussing what factors determine Indigenous ownership and quantifiable benefits to the community as well as the positives and negatives of federal procurement. The discussion also explores how long-term projects can create career paths for Indigenous people instead of short-term jobs — and in turn create economic stability.

“It’s essential that we create space for Indigenous youth to participate in national conversations about economic reconciliation if we hope to establish the sustained momentum needed to address and correct the growing economic gap existing between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians... I am certain the lived experiences, insights and unique outlooks of our 2023 Forward Summit Youth Delegation will provide inspiration and hope to all industry partners and conference participants in attendance.”
