CEDC develops and nurtures relationships with the Aboriginal community and looks for ways to enhance these relationships. As part of our vision, we are hoping to create working relationships with First Nations communities and organizations through listening, assisting and partnering with organizations and communities. Creating awareness for staff and our Aboriginal partners will foster working relationships that provide insight and opportunities for everyone.
Supporting the growth of Aboriginal partnerships in business
Key note speaker Wab Kinew is a one-of-a-kind talent, named by Postmedia News as one of “9 Aboriginal movers and shakers you should know”.
The Native hip hop artist and host of CBC’s documentary series, 8th Fire, took on his own bosses in a fight over words. Are the children of residential schools simply former students? Or are they, as Wab insisted, survivors?
Young Canadians, and Aboriginal youth in particular, face a wealth of challenges from rising obesity rates to lack of engagement with the political system all the way to a sense of loneliness amidst an increasingly technological world. In spite of the diversity of challenges, he believes that there is a common solution to all of these obstacles: building a new generation of active, motivated and compassionate citizens. He provides live business empowerment solutions towards that goal.
