Icebreaker Reception & Cultural Event
As is customary of every Cando conference, the opening Icebreaker Reception was held as an opportunity for delegates to socialize and network amid displays of breathtaking artwork. This year, Cando combined the Icebreaker Reception and Cultural Community Event. Conference delegates were treated to an evening featuring traditional entertainment by Dakib-ziibenhs Niimi-bimaadizijik - The Spring Creek Dancers, welcoming remarks by Chief M. Bryan LaForme from the host community and a keynote address by Jean Paul (JP) Gladu from Council for Aboriginal Business.
