On September 10, 2015 the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) will be hosting an Aboriginal Business Luncheon: The evolving faces of Aboriginal Business. This luncheon will feature keynote speakers Nicole Bourque-BouchierChief Executive Officer, and David BouchierPresident, Bouchier Group.

Since the recession of 2008-2009 Aboriginal businesses within the resource sector have felt a significant change in the availability of contract opportunities. The Bouchier Group has been a leader in Aboriginal businesses who have been able to create significant wealth and employment growth within the resource sector. Much of their success came from key changes within the company and strategic partnerships formed with Corporate Canada.

This keynote presentation will discuss the following:

  • how The Bouchier Group has managed to rapidly grow and challenges faced;
  • recruitment, hiring and training of Aboriginal peoples ready to enter the evolving resources sector; and,
  • reflections on how The Bouchier Group maintain a sense of community within their company.
