Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business is hosting a virtual roundtable on Indigenous economic development. This roundtable builds on the conversation started through the Shifting Landscapes forum

Indigenous communities have faced unique challenges in addressing COVID-19, including the lack of timely access to healthcare and services, access to clean water and safe housing, as well as the threat of isolated communities being devastated by COVID. As we look to the future beyond this pandemic, what actions can be taken to support economic development for Indigenous communities and how can we make the future better for all?

Hosted by Sprott’s Rick Colbourne, participants of the roundtable will be joined by discussion partners:

Merlyn Recinos, Mayor of Igloolik, Nunavut
Kelly Lendsay, President and CEO of Indigenous Works
Joy Cramer, Director of Operations, Southern Chiefs’ Organization
