webinar invite from the Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Competitiveness. This webinar is open to all for the intents and purposed of education, with a focus on supporting the Indigenous community and businesses.
"For an upcoming webinar series we’re excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Indigenous Economic Development & Reconciliation Speakers Series.
Join us for the first in a three-part series on building Indigenous self-determination through fiscal governance with Harold Calla, Executive Chair of the First Nations Financial Management Board.
Take a closer look at how First Nations communities are evolving and growing in B.C. and across Canada, regaining governance over their finances, and laying the foundations for community and economic development consistent with cultural knowledge and value systems. Find out how managing their own affairs enables First Nations to both move away from dependency and address barriers to attracting investments to their lands. Learn how these developments intersect with the Province’s commitment to reconciliation and implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Hear Harold Calla tell the story of how the Financial Management Board helps its members achieve self-governance over their finances, and the benefits that flow from the exercise of those powers."
