Workforce Forward Afternoon Roundtable - Urban Versus Rural Needs in Eastern Canada & Beyond
Session Description

More than 80% of Indigenous people in Ontario lives in urban settings and have unique needs. In this roundtable, our panel of speakers will address what needs to be addressed for Indigenous people in urban settings, especially when it comes to joining and advancing their place in the workforce.

“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.”
