For March’s TFAB Business Skills Development Webinar we will be providing a free live webinar stream of the Panel Discussion on First Nations Economic Advancement and Global Trade from the First Nations Export Form. This online event is presented by CCAB and sponsored by the Province of Ontario. This Webinar will provide participants the opportunity to engage the panel  as they discuss the following topics:

  • Experiences, successes and obstacles to export and trade globally;
  • Motivations for entering the global market;
  • Unique experiences for Aboriginal persons in trade;
  • Tools and resources that were helpful in entering and operating in global markets.

This panel will additionally cover the history of Indigenous trade, the modern treaty and international treaty environment. Discussion will include how the renegotiation may impact Aboriginal businesses, the effect on inter-tribal trade, and the importance of creating trade regimes that work for First Nation peoples.  Practical and contextual concepts will be included within the discussion.

Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panel.
