Annual Aboriginal Economic Development Conference & Calgary Gala

Please note that both events are SOLD OUT!! We are looking forward to a great week celebrating Aboriginal business. If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please contact Gloria Truong (gtruong@ccab.com).

Due to the overwhelming success of our 2016 AED Conference in Banff, the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) will be hosting our fourth annual Aboriginal Economic Development Conference happening May 11th, 2017 in Calgary. This year, the AED Conference will be held alongside our Calgary Gala where our Aboriginal Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) Award will be handed out.

We hope you can fit both into your schedule – it’s going to be a great day!!!

This year’s conference will highlight innovation in the Indigenous economy.
Aboriginal economic development corporations (AEDCs) work in a competitive environment, with constantly moving targets and changing expectations. To stay relevant in this environment, companies are continually innovating to gain market share, develop and apply new technologies and improve operations and processes. These innovations take place every day across the country, in big and small ways. From the construction of sophisticated energy and internet infrastructure to new ways of engaging cultural tradition in business operations, Aboriginal AEDCs are innovating to deliver a better future to their communities and Canada.

The Annual Calgary Gala will once again highlight an outstanding AEDC and affirm the substantial value AEDC’s bring to Aboriginal communities by way of employment, business development and revenue generation. It’s an exciting evening where success is celebrated and guests gain access to, and build relationships with, new customers, decision makers, and a strong network of successful businesses from across Canada.
