Upcoming Conference: Developing Aboriginal Economies

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

On May 1, 2008, the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, in partnership with the Rt. Hon. Paul Martin, will be hosting a summit entitled “Developing Aboriginal Economies.”  The summit is a one-day symposium featuring two roundtables with a diverse group of panelists.  The goal of this summit is to provide a forum for new ideas and new approaches to economic development in Aboriginal communities.

Canada’s Aboriginal communities are extremely diverse, and so too is the range of economic challenges facing these communities.  The Faculty of Law recognizes that meeting the challenge of developing Aboriginal economies will require complex and multifaceted solutions.  Thus, the intention of this summit is not simply to generate ideas, but to bring together the parties needed to forge unique and useful coalitions.  With this in mind, our panelists include not only members of the bar and the Academy but also elected officials such as Ontario's Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, business persons, and Aboriginal people in their capacities as leaders, bankers, and heads of corporations.
