Conference Speakers

Cando is pleased to announce a Call for Presenters for the 25th Annual National Conference & AGM to be held on October 22-25, 2018 in Enoch, Alberta.  This year’s conference will be co-hosted by Enoch Cree Nation.

Cando’s conferences provide Economic Development Officers (EDOs) with tools and resources to discover new opportunities for community economic development in Indigenous regions and communities throughout Canada. The conference will be of interest to all, from the beginner Indigenous community economic developer to the advanced practitioner. We will examine urban, rural and remote challenges; and offer exposure to diverse perspectives including First Nation, Métis and Inuit, and showcase entrepreneurial approaches in Indigenous economic development.

This is your opportunity to share your expertise, experiences and wisdom with fellow professionals working in Indigenous economic development. Conference workshop themes will reflect the multiple bottom lines of Indigenous economic development: social, cultural, economic and environmental. Conference sessions will address topics that have direct impact on EDOs and will provide the audience with the practical information and tools needed to strengthen Indigenous economies.
