Cando recognizes Aboriginal youth are one of the greatest assets Aboriginal communities have today. Over the past couple of decades, demographics have shifted dramatically resulting in an impressively large Aboriginal youth population in Canada. As Aboriginal economies are poised to grow, it is critical to invest in our young people because these are the leaders who will be taking the helm of our future. In additional to providing scholarships and hosting the prestigious National Youth Panel, Cando is committed to providing capacity building opportunities for young people that will not only attract them to the field of Aboriginal Economic Development but will provide them with skills to prepare them for success.
